Graphic listing MRIWA's six research priority areas with Infrastructure and Logistics and Remediation and Mine Closure highlighted

These programs are two new areas added to the MRIWA Research Priority Plan in 2019.

Research activity within the MRIWA’s research priority program area Infrastructure & Logistics seeks to optimise supply chain infrastructure by enabling enhanced networks and accurate geo-positioning and decrease the capital and operating costs associated with getting commodities to market.

While the Remediation & Mine Closure program aims to develop new technologies and approaches for mine remediation and alternative land use, while filling knowledge gaps to ensure a sustainable positive legacy for the industry and surrounding communities.

As at 30 June 2020, the investment in these two programs is comprised of:

  • MRIWA contribution $0.5m
  • Third-party contribution $0.8m
  • Total grant value $1.3m

Find out more about the themes and intended outcomes within Infrastructure & Logistics and Remediation & Mine Closure.
