OUR MISSION

All MinEx CRC Postgraduate projects are clearly aligned with our Mission to:

  • Demonstrate Australia as a destination country for mineral exploration
  • Develop more productive, safer and environmentally-friendly drilling methods for mineral deposit discovery and drill-out
  • Develop new technologies for collecting data while drilling
  • Implement a world-first collaboration of Geological Surveys, research and industry that will undertake drilling in under-explored areas of potential mineral wealth within Australia.

PROJECT AREAS

DRILLING TECHNOLOGIES

  • Drilling optimisation and automation
  • Real-time downhole sensing of drilling parameters
  • Innovative drilling and sampling technologies for mineral exploration

DATA FROM DRILLING
