SACOME pushes SA Government to back nuclear energy, Australian Mining

November 4, 2020News  Nickolas Zakharia   The South Australian Chamber of Mines and Energy (SACOME) has backed chief entrepreneur Jim Whalley’s call for the state government to identify the economic opportunities associated with South Australia’s uranium supply.

SACOME has also called for the state government to fund a nuclear energy forum, with South Australia holding 25 per cent of the world’s uranium resources and 80 per cent of Australia’s total uranium supply.

The chamber stated that the economic value of the nuclear fuel cycle needs to be re-examined due to the refinement and commercialisation of small modular reactors, which would be financially  bolstered by South Australia’s renewable energy supply.

“SACOME supports the chief entrepreneur’s statements and calls upon the Marshall Government to establish a Nuclear Energy Forum to advance the conversation about development of a South Australian nuclear industry.”

According to Frazer Nash head of Australian business Jonathan Armstrong, the nuclear energy forum would reap positive results [??] for the environment………..https://www.australianmining.com.au/news/sacome-pushes-sa-government-to-back-nuclear-energy/
