The Eyre Peninsula Mining Alliance was formed in 2010 with two main objectives:
- To tackle the lack of suitable mining infrastructure on South Australia's Eyre Peninsula
- To promote minerals development on the Eyre Peninsula
The explorers, developers and producers who make up the Eyre Peninsula Mining Alliance work with the community, other interested parties and all levels of government towards achieving the necessary power, water, port and transport infrastrastructure to establish mining as a major new industry on South Australia's Eyre Peninsula. In 2014 the Alliance joined SACOME as an internal committee.

Benefits of mining infrastructure
The development of mining infrastructure is perceived to bring benefits to all residents well into the future by boosting the regional economy, providing jobs and training; and improving services and the standard of living. The Eyre Peninsula Mining Alliance conducts its own research to support its position, and also works alongside recognised industry bodies such as SACOME and the SA Resources Infrastructure Taskforce, where their interests align. Together, the members of the Eyre Peninsula Mining Alliance represent the potential for hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of investment on Eyre Peninsula and the creation of hundreds of long-term jobs. Members believe that mining will play an increasingly important role in diversifying and strengthening the Peninsula’s economy and infrastructure base.
