The NSW election is over with the Baird government returned. Our local member Kevin Humphries, MP has won the seat of Barwon. We now await the announcement of who will be the Minister for Resources and Energy for the coming term of Government and which portfolio Kevin Humphries’ secures. By all accounts in the media the new Cabinet should be announced in the next couple of days.

The previous Minister for Resources & Energy, Anthony Roberts, MP, had reorganised the Division of Resources & Energy and recently appointed new Directors of the Operations and Compliance sections. Perhaps Minister Roberts will continue as the Minister, we will have to wait and see.

Coober Pedy has a huge Easter ahead with their 100 years celebration this coming weekend. There are several Lightning Ridge locals heading over and are bound to have an excellent time and catch up with many stalwarts of the opal industry.

Coober Pedy Miners’ Association President Paul Reynolds has reported their opal trade show is fully booked and they are expecting excellent sales. He also reported that mining activity has picked up with improved field prices. Apparently miners who have not mined for years are back out on the fields.
