A culture for creative ideas in mining.
The Tonsley Innovation District attracts companies looking to develop, launch and test innovative new mining technologies. BHP Billiton, BP, OZ Minerals, and Santos are just some of the many mining and energy companies with a strong presence within the state.
South Australia is recognised internationally as one of the world’s most attractive provinces for minerals and energy resources development. The South Australian Government is committed to ensuring major mining and energy projects are linked to local companies with appropriate capabilities.
Tonsley is a hub of this activity, with education facilities focused on skills and training, as well as companies who service this sector.
