Mining for Non-Miners - November 2016
In 2016, SACOME brought back the popular mining for non-miners course. Partnering with TAFE SA, the course gave participants a thorough understanding of how the sector works. The two day course provided an overview of the scientific, engineering, environmental and regulatory processes employed in transforming a mineral prospect to a mining operation.
The course also featured a site visit to Hillgrove Resources's Kanmantoo Copper Mine which was a highlight for many attendees.
Oil & Gas Essentials course - May 2016
Building on SACOME's previous Oil & Gas Essentials course, we teamed with TAFE SA, to deliver a two day oil & gas essentials course in May 2016.
The course gave participants a thorough understanding of how the Australian petroleum sector works, covering a range of geological, commercial and technical information in non-technical language.
"I have just finished attending SACOME’s Oil and Gas Essentials course and my compliments to your team as the 2 days was just what I hoped it would be."
