Department of State Development

Leigh Creek and surrounds

Following the announcement by Alinta Energy in July 2015 that the company would close its coal mine at Leigh Creek and power stations at Port Augusta, the South Australian Government established a taskforce and allocated funding for job creation and transition initiatives.

The Government is committed to regional South Australia and is now working with affected local governments, regional development authorities and other partners to assist the Upper Spencer Gulf and Outback region. For more information visit Leigh Creek Futures
