BHP BILLITON OLYMPIC DAM: Submissions to the South Australian Government

Client: BHP Billiton - Olympic Dam
Project: Recruitment campaign drive - mining professionals. Initial concepts.
Description: BHP Billiton were about to launch the official announcement of their Olympic Dam Expansion (ODX). They need new recruits. Seasoned professionals and graduates. It was already big news in the industry. This campaign played on that excitement and encouraged people to think bigger about their career opportunities.

Dear Networkers,

A number of you are running hot to-day. Please keep the cards, letters, and emails coming in. Luv it! I will just have to pray that Bunjil, the Creator Spirit sends me some volunteer staff and bloggers to keep up with it all.

Anyway, co-blogger and Networker, Denis of The Nature of Robertson has sent me the following:

There has been a massive public response to the BHP Billiton Olympic Dam EIS.

Premier Rann finds a way out - comments of registered SA voters (only) to be considered.

Mining Daily report:

Public responds to Olympic Dam

PUBLIC SUBMISSIONS for BHP Billiton's Olympic Dam expansion Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) closed last Friday afternoon, with the South Australian Government receiving almost 4000 submissions.

BHP Billiton released its initial Environmental Arial Statement on 1 May, allowing a fourteen week public consultation period.

South Australian Premier Mike Rann said the Government plans to consider all public submissions before finalising and making its own submission publicly available.

According to Rann, the size and scale of the Olympic Dam project demands the Government consider all submission from South Australian people.

"The EIS has generated a significant public response and we believe the Government should take into account those views before making its own final submission," he said.

"So we will listen and, where appropriate, take into account those public submissions before lodging our own submission in the coming weeks."
