Formally established in 1993, the Centre for Mined Land Rehabilitation consists of a collaborative and multi-disciplinary group of research, teaching and support staff, and postgraduate students. CMLR is dedicated to delivering excellence in environmental research, education and awareness to the national and international minerals industry, relevant government departments, non-government organisations and local communities.
CMLR is widely recognised as the source of quality research at the cutting edge of issues in mining environmental management and sustainability, across the full spectrum of resource commodities. It has built a reputation for providing the science necessary to inform decision-making that can minimise risks and maximise opportunities resulting from resource exploration, extraction and processing globally.
In 2013, CMLR celebrated 20 years of research, training and education, undertaken to advance environmental performance across the resources sector
