South Australia: The Saudi Arabia of Uranium By South Australian Chamber of Mines and Energy (SACOME) Chief Executive, Jason Kuchel

Uranium has been a part of South Australia’s mining history since its beginning, with ores mined from Mount Painter in the northern Flinders ranges, to mining at Radium hill, the world’s largest Uranium deposit at Olympic Dam and recent In-situ recovery mines on the edge of the Flinders Ranges. Presently South Australian Uranium is mined from hematite breccia complexes in the Gawler Craton or Sandstone hosted deposits in the Curnamona province. These two distinct regions contain 25 percent of the world’s global economically demonstrable resources of Uranium compared to Canada and Kazakhstan’s 12 and 11 percent. This has led some commentators to declare South Australia as “the Saudi Arabia of Uranium”.

Albany, located on the south coast of Western Australia less than 4 hours from Perth’s southern suburbs, is a picturesque and historic City about to come into its own.

Home to a growing population of 35,000 community-conscious residents, the City of Albany aims to be WA’s most sought after place to live, work and visit – a vision which grows closer to reality every day.

Albany – WA’s oldest European settlement – has long been a popular tourism destination, but its stunning scenery, incredible food and wine; and sunny, mild climate are just the start of the story.

2014 is a watershed year for the City of Albany. A range of major developments, opportunities and events are in the immediate pipeline – not least of which is the November Anzac Centenary
