Professional and Industry Affiliations

Cu-River is dedicated to having an active voice within the broader resources’ industry and contributing to key policy discussions that will shape its future. To do this we maintain membership to the State’s key industry body, the SA Chamber of Mines and Energy (SACOME).



CU-River management proactively participates and contribute to the following SACOME committees:

Mining and Extractives



Legislation and Regulation

Economic and Tax

External Affairs


SACOME represent companies with interests in the minerals, energy, extractive, and oil & gas sectors, including those who provide services to these companies.

Minerals are South Australia's largest export group.  SACOME has grown hand-in-hand with SA's resources industry for almost forty years, supporting its growth in a sustainable manner alongside SA's other valuable industries.

SACOME was founded in 1979; we are a small, dedicated team serving the needs of approximately 200 member organisations. We are governed by a council that oversees organisational priorities and policy direction and are guided by many committees that focus on specific aspects of the sector.

SACOME positions itself front and centre on the issues that will not only deliver a profitable and sustainable resources sector, but drive growth and productivity to the SA economy. There is a need to continually evolve and innovate as the sector faces new challenges and opportunities. SACOME values the relationships with all members, stakeholders and the community, and understands the importance of collaborating to achieve growth and realise benefits.
