Where SMI-CMLR Works

The CMLR origins began in the mineral- and energy-rich State of Queensland, contributing extensively to the rehabilitation challenges of the large open-cut coal mines of the Bowen Basin in central Queensland. Bauxite mines on Cape York Peninsula in north Queensland, the heavy mineral sands resources of North Stradbroke Island off the south-east coast, the open-pit gold mines in the mid-north of the State, the base metals mines in the north-west and the oilfields of the south-west, all became a part of the Centre’s state-wide field research laboratories. The national expansion then brought in mining and processing sites and operations that included New South Wales, Northern Territory and Western Australia. Internationally the Centre has been engaged in research and training activities more than 20 countries, with current active research collaborations in seven global locations.
