The Complex Orebodies Program is reaching the end of its fifth year of funding and is now moving into a new phase of operation. The aim of this meeting is to provide researchers and other interested parties with an overview of the outcomes and future plans of the Program.

Complex Orebodies was established in 2018 with the aim of developing a collaborative consortium with industry and academia to facilitate and deliver impactful research outcomes across the mining value chain to support the future supply of raw materials.

The Complex Orebodies Presentation Day provided a high-level description of the themes identified in the original plan and highlight the collaborations achieved within UQ and with external institutions, as well as the external support received for the project.

The event will also reflect on the research highlights over the past five years.
