CMLR'S Featured Research
Measuring bioavailable metals and metalloids
A new technique for measuring trace elements in water and sediment is fast becoming an important tool in monitoring the movement of bioavailable contaminants for mine-specific environmental monitoring.
Bioremediating bauxite residue using microbes
Research looking at transforming inhospitable bauxite residue into soil materials suitable for plant establishment and growth—using microbially-driven bioremediation strategies.
Effective and efficient ecological monitoring
Since each mine has particular site characteristics and requirements, site-specific monitoring programs are essential. CMLR is developing programs for multiple large-scale mining operations across Australia for more effective and efficient ecological monitoring.
