Lunch Series: Jacqui McGill, BHP Billiton Olympic Dam

BHP Billiton’s world class operations and deposit at Olympic Dam continues to provide economic benefits to South Australia through employment, providing work for local suppliers, supporting communities and increasing production.

In the role for just over a year, Asset President Jacqui McGill presented a timely and exclusive update to SACOME on the transformational mine, including how and when it plans to access the expansive southern area – previously untouched and home to 70% of its copper, uranium and gold - together with Olympic Dam’s staggering five year plan.

Dramatic production increases, 120km of new tunnels, processing innovations and cultural transformation are all underway or on the agenda as the mega-mine, one of SA’s major employers, sets itself up for long term, sustainable growth.
