Program 2

GEOMETALLURGY, GEOENVIRONMENT AND MINING


OBJECTIVES

  • Create an integrated, cross-disciplinary geometallurgical research platform that delivers fundamental knowledge, tools and methods to the global mining industry for optimising sustainable and profitable mineral extraction.
  • Develop more effective approaches to the definition of mineralogy, element deportment and texture using new technologies that can be linked to mineral processing performance and waste management, at a range of scales.
  • Provide improved attributes or indices of processing performance that can be embedded into block models to define processing domains, which can be exploited in mine planning and optimisation.
  • Deliver new cross-discipline geometallurgical education, training and awareness.
