The Earth is the foundation upon which we live, and it provides natural, mineral and energy resources that sustain economic growth and quality living standards.

Earth and environmental sciences underpin all aspects of the value chain from exploration through extraction to market and environmental stewardship.

Research spans fundamental understanding of minerals and mineral and energy systems developing through biogenic and abiogenic processes at surface and at depth, to applied and industry focused modelling and visualisation of deposits, and progressive and post-closure mine site rehabilitation.

World-class laboratory facilities, global partnerships and researcher expertise are best explored through the website.
