At the forefront of research, education and technical expertise, the Centre for Mined Land Rehabilitation (CMLR) is leading the way we think about mining environmental management.
The CMLR has a team of highly skilled professionals involved in broad research and training projects with mining companies, industry bodies and government departments in Australia and around the world. The Centre focuses on the key issues facing modern mining and minerals processing industries.
Current research projects fall into 3 categories:
- Ecosystem research
- Mine closure and post mining land-uses research
- Mine waste management research
The CMLR is the sole provider of environmental mining management within the University and has established for itself and the SMI a reputation of national and international significance.
A member of the Sustainable Minerals Institute (SMI), the Centre was established at The University of Queensland in 1993 and has built on more than twenty years involvement with the mining and minerals industries. The SMI builds upon the existing expertise within the various centres and departments and provide and over-arching framework for progressing Minerals Industry Research, Education and Training activities.
