The South Australian State Government is currently inviting residents to have their say during a review on some of SA’s Mining laws.
The Leading Practice Review of Mining Acts will open the door for these residents help make the state’s mining laws as flexible and appropriate as they need to be.
The Leading Practice Review of the Mining Act, the Mines Works and Inspection Act and the Opal Mining Act are aiming to bring outdates laws and acts up to date, helping to ensure that South Australia continues to innovate within the mining industry in Australia.
Mineral Resources and Energy Minister Tom Koutsantonis has spoken of the review set to be undertaken.
“South Australia already has an international reputation for providing a transparent, thorough and rigorous assessment process for the mining industry.
Our expert regulators ensure community and environment safety while at the same time providing certainty to investors and landowners.
But policy renewal is always important, and by doing this now South Australia will be in the box seat to realise the enormous benefits that will inevitably flow from the next upswing in the commodities cycle.
Listening to the community through comprehensive consultation is a basic requirement in ensuring any changes to our mining laws reflect what is important to all stakeholders”
