South Australia has rich potential across the mining value chain, from geological exploration, developing mineral and mining projects, to downstream secondary value-adding processing opportunities.

Our mining sector is supported by a strong equipment, technology and services industry that co-exists within hi-tech hubs and research centres, alongside future-focused industries like space and defence which help forge a collaborative ecosystem to open doors and inspire new ways of thinking.
