South Australian Future Mining Workforce Report 2014 - 2030

This report contains results showing year by year employment growth in five categories: semi-skilled, skilled operator, trade and technical, professional and administrative support. Many insights are revealed, for example the towns of the Far North and Eyre Peninsula, where many new mines are developing, are likely to be the focus of regional employment growth. While many mines may have FIFO camp facilities, some projects are likely to source local employees from towns such as Leigh Creek, Roxby Downs, Coober Pedy, Broken Hill, Port Lincoln, Ceduna and Tumby Bay. This full colour, comprehensive 46 page report is a first ever release and contains information vital for anyone in a planning or research role.
