Blessed with rich, natural assets, South Australia has provided minerals and energy resources to the world for more than 150 years.
The state has a diverse and resilient mining sector headlined by significant deposits of copper, gold, iron ore, uranium, graphite and mineral sands. We are home to one of the world’s biggest copper, gold and uranium mines, Olympic Dam, and one of Australia’s significant copper-gold mines at Prominent Hill.
In the energy space, we are home to Australia’s largest onshore oil and gas province. The mature Cooper and Eromanga Basins already produce significant petroleum resources and the less-explored Bight Basin provides a new frontier for investment.
South Australia also has world-class natural resources that are increasingly attracting investors in wind power, solar, geothermal and wave energy.
These vast natural resource assets are underpinned by a supportive, stable State Government, a highly skilled workforce and a respected regulatory framework creating an environment for low-risk, sustainable investment.
