The Centre for Water in the Minerals Industry conducts research towards achieving sustainable water management in the mining industry

SMI-CWiMI aims to be recognised as a leading research centre for supporting sustainable management of water in the minerals and energy industries

Founded in 2004, SMI’s Centre for Water in the Minerals Industry (SMI-CWiMI) conducts research to achieve sustainable water management in the mining and gas industries. We aim to deliver world class scientific discovery in fundamental and applied research. The important role of water in many aspects of these industries means that SMI-CWiMI is contributing to solving a range of inter-disciplinary problems. We engage with a wide range of research organisations and mining, gas and water stakeholders to achieve maximum benefits from our work.
