Perth Media Welcomes South Australian Graphite Play Renascor Resources


Perth Media announced today it will be promoting Renascor Resources which has a globally-significant graphite project, Siviour in South Australia.

Perth Media managing director Cate Rocchi said: “We are delighted that Renascor and its MD David Christensen have chosen to work with our team of highly-skilled media experts.

“We are also looking forward to learning more about the future demand for graphite globally.”

Renascor (ASX:RNU) is one of three ASX-listed companies that Perth Media promotes to both media and investors, using a range of media and content services. The others are Bryah Resources (ASX:BYH) and Australian Vanadium (ASX:AVL).

Several short films on Renascor are soon to be released, as part of the first round of media work.

The new contract is significant. It is the first time Perth Media will work with an Adelaide-based resources company.

“We continue to organically grow as Perth Media’s reputation for good service, integrity and high-quality spreads,” Ms Rocchi said.

Corporate Film Making

In other news, Perth Media is currently producing several fully-scripted, corporate, films. They are used by customers as assets to ‘pitch’ to investors and potential clients. “Some of our productions have resulted in lucrative contracts for clients. Films are highly effective at succinctly communicating messages about what products/services are on offer,” said Ms Rocchi. “We are seeing companies spending $10,000-$20,000 on a corporate film resulting in landing contracts of many millions. But the quality has to be good, time has to be taken to write good scripts and film makers must be skilled.”

Perth Media Expands Team, Client List and Opens New Nedlands Office in Perth


PERTH: Media content and public relations firm — Perth Media Pty Ltd — has opened a new office in Nedlands in line with continuing expansion plans.

The development is the latest news in a series of organic growth milestones for the Perth-based small business.

Perth Media managing director Cate Rocchi said: “Perth Media has, to date, been a small operation but we have consistently built powerful global profiles for our clients through tailored integrated media and communications services.

“We act in an advisory, creative and media service capacity and have a strong network of journalist and broadcast partners and connections, so are uniquely placed to deliver global-standard media management services in the sectors of finance, mining, renewables and agribusiness.”

The Perth Media team now includes editor/writer Torrance Mendez (formerly of The West Australian).

“Our team — which has welcomed high calibre artists, photographers, former reporters and film makers — produces some of Australia’s best, most consistent media content for corporates,” Ms Rocchi said. “It has taken many years to assemble productive working relationships with such a talented and professional group. We have also been careful to grow our business conservatively, so quality has remained excellent.”

Perth Media values include: staying true to the principles of integrity, authenticity and clarity; continuous improvement; and innovative thinking.

“We remain focused on improving media outcomes for our clients and enjoy the challenge of mixing social and traditional media as we embrace the communications of the future,” she said.

The company’s current list of services are: script/copy writing, investor relations management, content creation, blogs, photography, videography, social media strategy and delivery, infographics, strategic media advisory and support, campaign research, publicity, global TV, radio and press coverage, media training, CV writing and speech writing. Packages are available.

“We know how to achieve publicity and we will give clients authentic advice on which stories and media services they need to reach their customers,” Ms Rocchi said.

Perth Media Pty Ltd is now located at 47 Hampden Road, Nedlands, Perth. For the next four weeks (until November 15, 2018) the company is hosting some rarely-available media release writing sessions ($350) and media presentations, by appointment.

Perth Media Official Partner for Energy and Mines Summit in Perth, June 29-30, 2018

Australia becoming the Global Centre for Renewables for Mines

Perth, Australia, April 25, 2018: As recent project announcements show, the number of Australian mining operators seriously assessing and investing in renewables is growing rapidly. Driven by favourable economics and additional benefits including carbon reductions and social license, major and mid-tier Australian mines are adopting renewables.

South32 recently announced its 3MW solar farm for its Cannington mine in Queensland for which SunSHIFT is providing its re-deployable solar solution. Once complete, this will be the second largest solar project for a remote, off-grid Australian mine.

Similarly, Image Resources is investing in a 3-4 MW solar farm adjacent to its Boonanarring mine and processing plant, which are currently under construction. This ‘behind the meter’ solution will deliver around 25% of the facilities electricity needs. GMA Garnet, a leading supplier of garnet used in blasting and water jet cutting, has locked in energy prices for the next 13 years for its Western Australia operations through a long-term power purchase agreement for wind and solar.

OZ Minerals also recently announced plans to build a solar and battery storage facility at its Prominent Hill mine in South Australia, and is looking at further investments in renewables to support other projects in the region. The mine also became the first resource company to sign a transmission cost partnership with a renewables developer through its recent deal with SolarReserve.

Finally, New Century Resources is investing in SunSHIFT’s portable and scalable solar system to supply power for the refurbishment of its Century mine at $120/MWh which is a fraction of the $400/MWh it had been paying to run diesel during Care & Maintenance.  And Copper Mines of Tasmania (CMT) has an ambitious plan to make Mt Lyell on Tasmania's west coast Australia's first zero emissions mine through investments in electrification and renewables.

In addition to these projects, there is quite simply a wealth of major mines and mid-tier leaders at various stages if assessing and approving renewable energy investments for remote and grid-tied sites. While these projects are not yet public, many will be showcased at this year’s Energy and Mines Australia Summit on June 27-28 in Perth.

"What we are seeing is quite a transformation in the market around mining companies' appetites to adopt renewable energy generation,” comments Will Rayward-Smith, General Manager, SunSHIFT. "Scalability is very important because mining companies want to include a renewable option but may not want to progress to a high penetration system straight away.”

"At sites where we also integrate wind, the mine can offset more than 70% of its fossil fuel usage,” observes Amiram Roth-Deblon, Head of Global Business Initiatives, juwi Renewable Energies. “We are currently designing such solar-wind-battery hybrids for multiple sites in Western Australia."

This heightened activity has positioned Australia as the fastest growing market for renewables for mines.  Senior mining representatives are now preparing to meet with global renewables experts in Perth this June 27-28 to discuss renewables integration. This 2nd annual Energy and Mines Australia Summit, features presenters from BHP, Sandfire Resources, Fortescue Metals Group, Rio Tinto, South32, Nyrstar, Oz Minerals, Australian Vanadium, Panoramic Resources, Montezuma Mining Company, Resolute Mining and Gold Fields.

SunSHIFT is the in association sponsor for the Summit which offers a complete picture of current opportunities and challenges in integrating alternative energy options for remote, fringe-of-grid, and grid-connected mines. The Summit is also being supported by juwi Renewable Energies, VSUN Energy, Hatch, Aggreko, Zenith Energy, and ONETIDE Modular Systems.

For more details on these projects and the upcoming Summit visit Energy and Mines Australia Summit website.

Opportunity to Own Free Fixle Shares by Attending!

Perth-based Fixle is proud to announce a one-off, spectacular evening event – Naomi Simson ‘Small Business Success’ – in the Grand Ballroom at Crown Perth tonight, Thursday 3rd May, 2018 at 5.30pm.

Truly inspirational – Naomi is riveting, she will engage you from the moment she starts sharing her wealth of business insight.

One of Australia’s most prominent entrepreneurs and business leaders, Naomi Simson is known as the founder of online experience retailer Red Balloon. You may also know her as an investor on Network Ten’s popular television series Shark Tank. Naomi’s insider knowledge will allow you to transform your business with methods that you will not find anywhere else. Naomi will give you a clear vision of what steps you need to take, and exactly how you should do them.

As well as Naomi Simson, the Perth Symphony Orchestra and The Dance Collective will be performing while radio personality Dean Clairs (Mix 94.5) will act as Master of Ceremonies during this exciting evening.

Exclusive offer: All attendees will be given the opportunity to receive free stakeholder membership in Fixle when it goes public. A $5,000 investment in a search engine company 5 years ago would now be worth over $1.5 million. This is a unique chance to own a part of the latest business tech innovation.

Fixle describes itself as an online directory and booking app for local businesses! All are welcome to sign up now! Fixle has been created by a dynamic Perth team lead by businessman Aaron Pascoe, who owns Pascoe’s Gas, Water and Electrical. That firm, supplying high-quality plumbers and electricians, was launched 30 years ago but became highly successful in recent years after marketing its no call out fee and quality guarantees.

This same business system – incorporating in-house designed software that allows online bookings and quality control – is now applied to Fixle in Perth. Now any Perth businesses offering a service, from videographers to chiropractors, can use Fixle to reach new customers.

To access two for one ticketing link for Naomi Simson’s event click here.


A business influencer and leader with more than two million Linkedin followers, Naomi is the author of three books including the bestseller Live What You Love, I Want What She's Having and Ready to Soar.

Naomi is an engaging and passionate speaker, often drawing on her own personal experiences as a business owner. She provides thoughtful and honest conversations on topics such as purpose, leadership, business success, the entrepreneurial journey and thriving workplaces.

First, she worked for big business – IBM, Apple, KPMG and Ansett Airlines – but she found her greatest success with small business.

In 2001, she started off in her front room with a second-hand computer and a wad of cash. This she turned into RedBalloon, a pioneering Australian online success story. Then she found fame as a star of the small screen in Channel TEN’s Shark Tank, a show that pitches people with business ideas into a sea of business people who could be potential backers.

For Naomi, the road to happiness is signposted by Three Rs – resilience, respect and responsibility. Her peers acknowledge her contribution to business life with accolades that include Pearcey ICT Tech Entrepreneur of the Year, National Winner Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year, National Winner of Telstra Business Women’s Awards for Innovation, and five times RedBalloon has been voted One of Australia’s Best Places to Work.

She matches her business acumen with a caring nature. She is a director of the University of Melbourne Faculty of Business Economics and a Governor of the Cerebral Palsy Alliance. Her character took her to philanthropy, a role she has relished with a passion.

Naomi insists that life should be a communal experience. “People need more shared good times. We are meant to hang out together,” she declares.

'We have found Cate to be a dynamic and enthusiastic advocate for our company across all media channels. Cate’s extensive network of media contacts has allowed us to receive a huge amount of mainstream media coverage in what is a very difficult and crowded marketplace. This would not have been possible had we not had her promoting our story.  She has also been very helpful in getting management trained and well prepared for live media interviews.
