Rann to finalise BHP Olympic Dam mine expansion

South Australian premier Mike Rann has met with BHP to negotiate the final details for the Olympic Dam mine’s expansion.

They met in Adelaide for what is understood to be the final sign off for the legislation needed for the $30 billion expansion, AdelaideNow reports.

Rann has previously said that he would only step down once he had completed negotiations for the expansion.

Education minister Jay Weatherill will step into the role.

However, he did not attend the meetings.
