Thousands of mining jobs for South Australia


Mining jobs on Eyre Peninsula, South Australia

A state government report estimates the existing mines of OneSteel and Iluka will be joined by at least seven new mining operations over the next five years, creating thousands of mining jobs on Eyre Peninsula over the next decade.

The study states if all seven mines proceed to the operating phase, it is estimated more than 2200 ongoing direct mine jobs will be created in mining and processing operations.

Conservative estimates of new mining jobs associated with construction of the mines and infrastructure, indicate there will be a requirement for at least a further 4500 mine jobs over the next five years, peaking at 1700 positions in 2014. The relatively high level of staff turnover means mining job openings will exceed the number of new jobs created.

The projects will be mostly iron ore mines and if they all proceed, it is estimated replacement demand over the next decade will exceed 5000 mining related positions.

Diverse mining  job opportunities

Eyre Peninsula mining projects included in the report are OneSteel’s Project Magnet and OneSteel Processing Plant in the Middleback Ranges; Iluka’s Jacinth /Ambrosia in the Eucla Basin on the West Coast; Iron Clad’s Willchery Hill Stage 1 project near Kimba; Iron Road at Warramboo; Centrex’s Bungalow prospect and Lower Eyre projects including the Eyre Iron venture at Koppio; Lincoln Minerals Gum Flat Stage 1 and 2; Minotaur at Poochera and Uranium SA’s Mullaquana project.
