INVESTORS will now have South Australia’s resource information at their fingertips with the launch of a new smartphone app complementing the state government’s one-stop-shop prerogative for the resource industry.

South Australian Mining, a free app for both Apple and Android products, provides 24-hour access to key resource-related information, keeping businesses up to date as they weigh up investment decisions across the state.

Mineral resources and energy minister Tom Koutsantonis used the Mines and Money conference in Melbourne this week to launch the app.

“South Australia Mining is the first government app of this nature in Australia and we hope it will help inform investors about the opportunities our State has to offer across a broad range of resources,” Mr Koutsantonis said.

“Real-time information at your fingertips unleashes the huge store chest of data held by the government and puts it in the hands of the decision makers in the resources sector.

“We have long adopted a one-stop-shop philosophy in South Australia and this government-produced app puts that into practice in an innovative way for existing and potential investors.”

Funded by the PACE 2020 initiative, the app features a geospatial map interface, current information on mines and projects, background on South Australian geology and directions for further information.

The app gives easy access to:

  • Investment opportunities in the minerals, energy, renewables and infrastructure sectors;
  • Views of major mine locations and developing mineral and petroleum projects;
  • The ability to selectively view the occurrence of uranium, gold, copper, iron ore, gas, geothermal clusters, and oil and gas shows;
  • Real-time Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) links, company websites, development status and resource estimates;
  • An interactive geology map; and
  • The location of key infrastructure including rail, roads, ports and power lines.
