The Plan To Boost Copper Production In South Australia | Gizmodo ... - Gizmodo Australia

From 2014 to 2015, copper and copper concentrates exports from South Australia were valued at over $2 billion - making it South Australia's single largest export item in value. Now, The University of Adelaide is set to lead research into advanced technologies for boosting the state's copper production, and develop a globally competitive mining technology services sector in the state.

"There is a large untapped copper resource in the state with total value of known copper resource (with gold as a by-product) at over $800 billion," says Professor Stephen Grano, Director of the University of Adelaide's Institute for Mineral and Energy Resources, who will be director of the new Research Consortium.

"There is a significant potential to increase the rate of commercial exploitation of these resources which would have major beneficial economic impacts for the state. However, there are also...

One Nation misses deadline to register for South Australia poll - SBS

One Nation will not run its own candidates in the South Australian election after failing to register in time.

One Nation won't be running candidates in the South Australia state election after "time may have got the better" of the party's registration process.

The deadline to register a party for the March poll came and went last Friday without One Nation submitting the necessary paperwork.

However, the party believes it can still run independent candidates in SA under a One Nation banner.

The 2018 March election is tipped to be hotly contested with a redistribution of seats putting the opposition Liberals in a strong position.

There is also the unknown factor of how well candidates from independent senator Nick Xenophon's SA Best party will perform, with the party expected to announce candidates by the end of September.

The key issue in South Australia remains the reliability and...

SA creates new space industry centre as Premier urges PM to announce national agency - ABC Online

University of Adelaide satellite launch

The South Australian Government says it wants to capitalise on the fast-growing multi-billion dollar business around space, announcing the creation of a South Australian Space Industry Centre.

The Government said the centre (SASIC) would help to fuel space industry innovation, encourage start-ups and create high-tech jobs.

The announcement comes ahead of the International Astronautical Congress which is being held in Adelaide next week, with some of the largest space agencies and companies — including NASA and SpaceX — to be in attendance.

"We know that the space industry in this country and around the world is growing at about three times the rate of growth [of] the rest of the growth in the world economy," Premier Jay Weatherill said.

South Australia to go it alone on Royal Adelaide Hospital site ... - The Fifth Estate

The South Australian government will take control of the $1 billion redevelopment of the old Royal Adelaide Hospital site, following its rejection of the preferred developer’s final offer for not representing “the best value for South Australian taxpayers”.

The news has outraged the opposition, Infrastructure Partnerships Australia and the development consortium Commercial & General and John Holland, which may launch legal action for compensation.

Premier Jay Weatherill said the area was arguably Australia’s most premium development site, and he didn’t want it to be “fenced off for years to come and left to the market to dictate what happens and when”.

“The old Royal Adelaide Hospital site is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity in the heart of one of the world’s most liveable cities, so it’s critical that the redevelopment delivers a first class result for all South Australians,” Mr...

South Australian Parliament to broadcast proceedings live online - ABC Online

TV cameras at SA Parliament

The South Australian Parliament is finally set to enter the 21st century as it prepares for a live video broadcast on its website for the first time next week.

The move comes more than a decade after Federal Parliament started broadcasting online and means members of the public will be able to watch a live feed of South Australia's upper and lower houses.

While the move means better access for the public, it could mean more restrictions for the media.

Until now, TV outlets have packed the strangers' gallery to film proceedings, but will now have to access the Parliament's own feed for their news reports.

Since becoming Speaker in 2013, Labor MP Michael Atkinson has relaxed the rules in the House of Assembly, allowing media to film and photograph MPs, even when they are not...

    South Australia's digital drivers' licences to reduce possibility of ... - ABC Online

    A generic driver's licence.

    South Australian drivers' licences will enter the digital era in October, with the State Government to make them available on a smartphone app.

    While drivers can use the app to replace their physical licence, Police and Road Safety Minister Chris Picton assured South Australians who are not ready to part ways with their card that it is an optional system.

    "People can have the faith that if they want to continue using their licences in exactly the same way that they currently do, they will perfectly be able to do that in the future," he said.

    The digital licence has more functions than a physical licence, which Mr Picton said makes it less open to forgeries and fraud.

    It updates in real time to show if a licence has been suspended or expired, and has a...

    Young abuse victims' evidence inadmissable after SA Health accreditation blunder - The Advertiser

    SA HEALTH has apologised for a blunder which resulted in recorded interviews with children suspected to be victims of sexual or physical abuse being deemed inadmissable as evidence in criminal trials.

    Attorney-General John Rau said he would rush retrospective laws into Parliament to ensure victims were not made to repeat painful evidence in court.

    Training undertaken by interviewers at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital had not been accredited by then Health Minister Jack Snelling. As a result, at least one interview with a young vulnerable witness was inadmissable, a court ruled last month.

    In a statement, SA Health said: “Interviews with vulnerable people are carried out by qualified psychologists and social workers who have also undergone appropriate training. However, due to an administration error in the certification process, the qualifications of staff that completed...

    Bernardi's outrage over SA school's 'wear a dress' fundraiser backfires, charity gets $25K

    Vocal anti-same sex marriage campaigner Cory Bernardi has slammed an Adelaide primary school’s "wear a dress" fundraiser, claiming it encouraged “gender morphing”.

    But the criticism backfired, helping the school generate $25,000 in donations from those who opposed the the Australian Conservatives senator's stance.

    The student-led end of term activity planned to raise $900 in gold coin donations for the Do It In A Dress organisation, which supports girls in Africa from being denied an education.

    Friday Pulse: Serious motorcycle crash in the Riverland | Adelaide ... - The Advertiser

    A 21-YEAR-OLD man has been killed after his dirt bike crashed into a post and tree in the Riverland last night.

    Just before midnight, emergency services were called to Edgar Bartlett Drv, a dirt road, following reports of a crash.

    The Salisbury North man, who had been riding with two other people at the time of the crash, died at the scene.

    Major Crash investigators attended and are looking into the circumstances of the crash, which caps off a horror week on South Australian roads.

    A 23-year-old woman was killed yesterday morning when her Mazda veered off the road and into a tree at Echunga in the Adelaide Hills.

    On Tuesday afternoon, a motorcyclist was killed in a collision with a 4WD on the South-Eastern Freeway at Monteith, near Murray Bridge.

    FRAGILE soccer facilities are jeopardising SA chances of seeing the Matildas shining as Australia’s most popular women’s sports team at the 2023 FIFA women’s World Cup.

    Football Federation Australia’s announcement in June it would bid for the women’s World Cup in six years was given a massive boost of confidence when more than 31,000 fans saw the Matildas beat Brazil in Penrith and Newcastle this week.

    Adelaide Oval is looming to be out of bounds as key tenants the AFL’s Adelaide Crows and Port Adelaide will be mid season in June/July 2023 when the tournament is expected to be played.

    A spokesman for the Adelaide Oval Stadium Management Authority said “nothing had been discussed about the women’s World Cup with FFA, but they are aware of the bid.”

    Pumped hydro storage 'could make Australia run on renewable energy alone within 20 years' - ABC Online

    Pumped Hydro: Australia's energy future?

    Australia has the capacity to store up to 1,000 times more renewable energy than it could ever conceivably need, according to an analysis by researchers at the Australian National University (ANU).

    Key points:

    • Investment in renewables will see an increased need for hydro storage, researchers say
    • Study found at least 22,000 suitable locations for pumped hydro sites
    • Researchers say Australia could transition to 100pc renewable energy in 20 years if just a few of those sites were built

    ANU engineering professor Andrew Blakers has conducted a study looking into pumped hydro sites and has concluded that there are at least 22,000 suitable locations nationwide.

    Professor Blakers said if storage was built at just a tiny fraction of those places, Australia could transition to 100 per...
