SA Government gets enduring community value from mining

Dr Boyd Blackwell, Principal Research Leader of the Enduring Community Value from Mining (ECVM) project, presented findings to the South Australian Government Department of State Development in October, including a preview of the ECVM Remote Community Toolkit.

Departmental representatives once again confirmed the importance of ECVM’s work in helping inform the transition of Leigh Creek to a future without mining and to better understanding remote communities and opportunities for economic development.

Discussions are continuing about leveraging future collaborative opportunities beyond the life of the CRC-REP. For more information on this project, please contact Dr Blackwell at boydb@une.edu.au or on (02) 6773 3279.
