Get involved

*UPDATE: Grain producers now have until the end March to make submissions to the review of the Mining Act. The State Government granted the extension due to the late finishing harvest. All other submissions to the review are due this Friday 24 February.

---------------------------------

We welcome all industry, traditional and other landowners, farmers, regional communities and stakeholders to contribute throughout what will be an extensive consultation process.

Stakeholders are invited to make any initial comments on the review at any time via email to DSD.miningactreview@sa.gov.au.

Discussion Papers are available to download below and will be progressively updated over the coming weeks.  Stakeholders are invited to make any initial comments on this platform or lodge submissions on each paper via email to DSD.miningactreview@sa.gov.au or by post to Department of State Development, Mineral Resources, GPO Box 320 Adelaide, 5001.

Because the Department intends to proactively engage with as many community members and stakeholders through as many forums as possible (e.g. the DSD website, written submissions, public forums and meetings, yourSAy, direct meetings with key stakeholders) the Department intends to consider, and transparently publish, relevant comments from this site. For this reason, all comments should be able to be clearly attributed to a person or organisation (the same standard placed on everyone making written submissions during consultation). Anonymous, unattributable or irrelevant comments may be removed if they can’t be verified. This will make sure everyone gets a fair hearing, and we encourage everyone to get involved and make a formal written submission.
