Reactive leadership on unconventional gas
SACOME is surprised at the announcement by South Australian Liberal leader, Steven Marshall, for a policy to place a 10-year moratorium on hydraulic fracturing of unconventional gas in the South East.
SACOME welcomes re-elected Councillors after our recent AGM. Greg Hall (Rex Minerals), Andrew Cole (OZ Minerals), Wendy Roxbee (Senex Energy), Alison Snel (Flinders Ports) and Mark Dayman (Fyfe) will all continue for a two year term, with Terry Burgess also continuing as President.

Vic fraccing legislation sets a dangerous precedent
SACOME says legislation introduced in Victoria’s state parliament to ban onshore gas development including hydraulic fracturing, is poor policy and reflects decision making based on politics rather than science.

Actions to grow SA uranium industry commended
SACOME welcomes the State Government’s Nuclear Fuel Cycle Royal Commission response released this week, with actions set to expand our uranium industry.
Rebecca Knol, SACOME CEO, said “The Government’s response this week indicates its support and confidence in further developing our uranium mining industry.”
The debate must go on
SACOME welcomes and supports the State Government's decision on further involvement in the nuclear fuel cycle.
"The current discussion is strikingly similar to that surrounding the development of the Olympic Dam resource in the early 1980s. The concerns of the public on economic, environment, safety and consent are very much the same.”
