Week in Review – 17 March 2012

Posted: 17/03/2012 5:00:00 AM by AMMA Mining Oil and Gas Jobs
Filed under: Mining, Job-seekers


It doesn’t take long before we come around to our two favourite subjects – the resources boom and the skills shortage. Most jobseekers already know it’s not easy breaking in but it was encouraging to read the real demand for workers is going to start rolling out over the next three years. Gina Rinehart is going ahead with a new mining project and Rio Tinto creates a mining chair at the University in New South Wales. While we might all be thinking green for St. Patrick’s Day, in WA it’s all about gold.

Here’s what we were reading this past week:

Courier Mail

The Sydney Morning Herald

The Australian

  • Mining boom can lift whole economy - Australia needs reforms to maximise growth in a mining boom. Surging Asian demand provides a tremendous opportunity for Australia. Yet we are arguing mainly about sector winners and losers and distribution issues
  • Rinehart pushes on with $7bn Roy Hill mine project - Gina Rinehart will seek to dampen speculation that a bitter family feud has threatened her planned $7 billion Roy Hill iron ore mine by unveiling this week the project's equity partners, including a $1.5bn cash injection from Korean steel giant Posco.

Australian Mining

  • Remote control your mine [blog] - Investment in remote mining technology has reached a tipping point. What was once talked about as a future trend is now a tangible reality with remote solutions used daily for many mines.
  • WA home to top 4 gold mines - Western Australia is home to the nation's top four producing gold mines, with Australia remaining the world's second largest gold producer in 2011, according to Surbiton Associates.

Science Daily
