To report a serious incident to DEM, as required by Section 85(2) of the Petroleum and Geothermal Energy Act 2000, licensees should contact the serious incident reporting hotline on: (08) 8463 6666. For more information please visit the Compliance and Monitoring webpage | DEM-ERD has just released the first “Basin in a Box” data-package covering the Simpson and Pedirka Basins. The dataset is available via the “Data and Publications” page. Each package is a consolidated set of seismic and well data to facilitate new ventures and exploration assessments of frontier basins in South Australia. Data releases for other frontier basins will follow.

Selected publications relating to geoscience in South Australia published in key scientific journals or by the Government of South Australia's Mineral Resources and Energy Resources Divisions are listed below. Authors from the Mineral Resources and Energy Resources Divisions are shown in bold.

External publications link to abstracts via the doi (digital object identifier).

Mineral Resources and Energy Resources publications can be downloaded via the South Australian Resources Information Gateway (SARIG)

These references have been sourced by the Geoscience Library using the American Geological Institute ‘GeoRef’ database, publishing company listings, Mineral and Energy Resources Divisions' databases, Google Scholar and new publication alerts.
