Local landowners, farmers and community members who have concerns about the potential impact of resource companies on their property are being encouraged to make use of the Rural Businesses support Landowner Information Service.
The initiative, fully funded by the Marshall Liberal Government, will be taking public enquires and provide free of charge, easy to understand information to individuals or businesses who may be affected by activities conducted by the state’s mineral exploration and mining sectors.
Minister for Energy and Mining Dan van Holst Pellekaan says the government recognises the importance of both the agricultural and resources sectors to South Australia’s economy and the need for respectful working relations between them.
Pellikaan said the service offers a helping hand to landowners to point them in the right direction and help them navigate the often complex technical and legal processes involved with mining and mineral exploration on their land.
