South Australia launches plan to help companies tap into mining

0

A new plan has been launched by the South Australian government for Accelerating Exploration (Pace). It’s hoped the Pace Supply Chain Development programme will help companies tap into more than A$250-billion worth of mining projects around the globe. The programme is directly linked to the government’s economic priority of unlocking the potential of resources, energy and renewable assets in the state.

Mineral Resources and Energy Minister Tom Koutsantonis said: “This programme will support South Australian companies to connect and build relationships with large international resource and tier-one companies. In South Australia there are some A$7-billion of mining projects at the feasibility stage, in Australia some A$80-billion, but internationally there is the potential to tap into more than A$250-billion.

“We need to build the competitiveness of South Australian companies so they can position themselves as globally relevant and able to export their products and services to resource and energy companies around the world.”
