Replacement mSATA connector needed

I have found that the mini usb port on my Samsung G3 Station had disconnected/been ripped off.

After removing the enclosure I have unplugged what seems to be an mSATA converter or something (pictured) and now I need to replace it.

Where abouts would I be able to obtain a fairly cheap replacement part in Australia?

Item specifics:

"Converter" - G3 Station 3.5" REVO.4 20100204

Hard Drive - Samsung HD154UI 1500GB +12V/+5V, 0.5A, 0.7A

Thanks in advance for any help!

Bought a Digitech USB 3.0 to SATA adaptor at Jaycar after giving up trying to reattach it, had to cut a hole in the existing enclosure to fit the new part but works fine now.
