The Complex Orebodies Program is reaching the end of its third year of operation. The aim of this meeting is provide researchers and other interested parties with an overview of the research programs underway, along with their outcomes and forward plans.
The aim of the presentations will be to provide a high level description of each project and its importance to the unlocking of complex orebodies. Presenters will also highlight the collaborations achieved within UQ and with external institutions, as well as the external support received by the project. The forum will also provide an opportunity for presenters and participants to reflect on the opportunities that have been created by the strategic support provided for the program.
Presentations will cover all of the themes identified in the original Complex Orebodies plan, including:
• Understanding Complex Orebodies - mapping the full range of TESG Challenges
• Social Footprints and Data - addressing the knowledge required to improve the social performance and outcomes of mining
• Low Footprint Processing - reducing the footprint of mining operations
• Variability and Flexibility - challenging the paradigm of “bigger is better”
• Energy and Efficiency - transformative mining and processing
