MDRU’s Geometallurgy Initiative will develop and implement a range of research opportunities, strategies and projects to characterising ore body variability in this rapidly developing field.  We will provide the leadership to facilitate a new era in geometallurgical research, training and education.   Areas of focus are:

  • Geometallurgical applications across the mining value chain, including precious and base metal projects
  • Tools and protocols for the collection of rock properties to document metallurgical domains
  • Geometallurgy training and short courses
