Our Partnership with Rex Minerals
SA-based Rex Minerals will fund one $20,000 scholarship for a student enrolling in mining engineering at The University of Adelaide and commencing their studies in 2022.
The successful student will receive $10,000 each year for the first two years of their course and have the opportunity to develop a career-enhancing relationship with the company.
Recognising the growing demand for engineering expertise in the mineral sands industry to provide critical minerals essential for global and sustainable development, the South Australian Government has pledged to match industry-funded scholarships. This means that one additional scholarship will involve Rex Minerals. One will be named the Rex Minerals / Playford Trust Mining Engineering Scholarship and the other will be named the SA Government / Rex Minerals / Playford Trust Mining Engineering Scholarship.

Headquartered in Australia, Rex Minerals Ltd is an ASX listed minerals exploration and development company with Projects in South Australia and Nevada, USA.
Rex Minerals is in the throes of developing its 100%-owned flagship copper and gold Hillside Project, located 165kms from Adelaide and 12kms south of Ardrossan on the Yorke Peninsula.
Hillside is one of the largest undeveloped open pit copper projects in Australia and currently contains about 2Mt of copper (Cu) and 1.4Moz of gold (Au).
Rex believes there has never been a better time or stronger rationale for Australia and SA to champion investment in its people and assets, and to future proof – indeed future prosper – the country and state through projects like Hillside. The Project, alongside other mining developments, will be the critical bedrock in the nation’s recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic and will help transition to a prosperous low-carbon economy.
