The South Australian Chamber of Mines and Energy (SACOME) is the peak industry body representing companies with interests in the South Australian minerals, energy, extractive, and oil & gas sectors, including those who provide services to these companies.
Minerals are South Australia's largest export group; oil & gas has a 50 year history in SA, contributing significantly to the State's economy and jobs. SACOME has grown hand-in-hand with SA's resources industry for almost forty years, supporting its growth in a sustainable manner alongside SA's other valuable industries.
SACOME was founded in 1979; we are a small, dedicated team serving the needs of approximately 200 member organisations. We are governed by a council that oversees organisational priorities and policy direction and are guided by many committees that focus on specific aspects of the sector.
SACOME positions itself front and centre on the issues that will not only deliver a profitable and sustainable resources sector, but drive growth and productivity to the SA economy. There is a need to continually evolve and innovate as the sector faces new challenges and opportunities. SACOME values the relationships with all members, stakeholders and the community, and understands the importance of collaborating to achieve growth and realise benefits.
SACOME has recently released its priorities for the 2018 State Election. Click on the image below to read the SACOME Priorities - State Election 2018 document.
