DEVELOP 2017 wrap

23 October 2017

RESA concluded the 2017 DEVELOP program in late September, with the final workshop being followed by a mock buyer panel for participants, with representatives from Oz Minerals, Ensign Energy, Design4Growth and the Department of State Development in attendance.

Over the course of DEVELOP, companies explored their core value proposition to the mining industries. Participants worked to refine their resources offering through exploring new markets and developing dedicated resources strategies.

The DEVELOP program was a component of the PACE Supply Chain Development program, a South Australian Government program supporting companies in the Mining Equipment, Technology, and Services industry. RESA is thankful to the Department for supporting this program in 2016 and 2017, without out which the program could not have happened.

RESA will be running a new iteration of the program in 2018 as the Resources Ready program, delivering to six regional centres nationally. For more information, go to
