Huge expansion of existing mine:
At the Olympic Dam site in South Australia alone, more than 6,000 construction workers along with 4,000 ongoing mining jobs and an estimated 15,000 indirect mining supply jobs are expected to be generated if the $30 billion expansion of the copper, gold and uranium mining projects in the State`s north goes ahead.
Plans call for building a new town, airport, gas-fired power station, and construction of 105 kilometres of new railway track, electricity transmission lines, water pipelines and a desalination plant. Mining uranium at the Olympic dam site could result in supplying as much as a third of the world`s 386 operating nuclear plants from what is the world`s largest known uranium deposit.
