Welcome to the Minerals Research Institute of Western Australia
The Minerals Research Institute of Western Australia (MRIWA) is a statutory body established by the Western Australian Government under the Minerals Research Institute of Western Australia Act 2013 to stimulate minerals research to support investment in, and operation of, a globally competitive minerals industry in Western Australia.
MRIWA’s primary function is to provide and administer funding grants to carry out minerals research.
