Santos and OZ Minerals are contributing to the 1,600-kilometre rebuild of the historic South Australian Dog Fence with the donation of more than 4 thousand lengths of drill rod.

Both Santos and OZ Minerals are supporting the Dog Fence Board by donating steel posts to the once in one hundred year rebuild of the fence which protects our sheep industry.

The donated drill rod can often be difficult to source; however, Santos has committed 3000 lengths of drill pipe to the project and OZ Minerals has donated 1000 lengths to date, with more to come.

The 25-million-dollar infrastructure project is estimated to deliver net benefits between 56 million dollars and 113 million dollars over 20 years.

More than 400 kilometres are expected to be completed by 30 June 2021.
