Aurichalcite mineral ore copper rock

We explore all things metals, minerals and mining, with a focus on sustainability

We investigate how to sustainably source, extract and use Earth's resources to support our growing global population and the hugely increased demand for metals associated with the green energy transition, while minimising direct and indirect environmental impacts. Topics studied include:

  • Ore formation processes;
  • Advanced mineral exploration techniques including isotope analysis and remote sensing;
  • Rock mechanics and fracturing for improved block caving prediction;
  • Environmental modelling and life cycle assessment; and
  • Minerals processing equipment and circuit design, modelling and optimisation.
