Welcome to the Energy Resources of Australia website. Here you will find information about our proud history as one of the world’s largest suppliers of uranium oxide, our commitment and progress in rehabilitation as well as information about our assets, principles, performance and operations.
The health and safety of our employees, contractors, suppliers, the community and the environment are paramount and our team is committed to our goal of zero harm.
Our most important asset is our people.
ERA is committed to diversity in its workforce and to providing development opportunities to our employees.
Currently within the business 16 per cent of employees are women and 13 per cent are indigenous. In 2016 we welcomed four new apprentices to the company, including three women and three of the new apprentices are indigenous.
ERA has a strong commitment to rehabilitating the disturbed land at Ranger and Jabiluka and since 2012 we have invested more than $425 million in rehabilitation and water management projects.
ERA is currently in the process of developing closure criteria for the mine in accordance with the existing Ranger Authority, all mining and processing activities at Ranger must cease by January 2021 and rehabilitation must be completed by January 2026.
ERA owns three main assets they are the Ranger stockpiles, Ranger 3 Deeps resource and Jabiluka Mineral Lease.
Care and maintenance activities continue for the Ranger 3 Deeps decline and the associated infrastructure, at a cost of approximately $4 million per annum.
The Jabiluka Mineral Lease remains under long term care and maintenance.
The three main priorities for the company in the near term are our commitment to continuing progressive rehabilitation, maximising cash flow from the processing of stockpiled ore and preserving the option for future development of Ranger 3 Deeps.
For more than 35 years, ERA has had a proud history as an important contributor to the community in the West Arnhem region and as a reliable supplier to the global nuclear energy industry.
