Centre for Mined Land Rehabilitation (CMLR) Australia

A member of the Sustainable Minerals Institute (SMI), the Centre for Mined Land Rehabilitation (CMLR) was established at The University of Queensland, Australia, in 1993. CMLR is a research centre that builds on the strengths of the diversity of backgrounds and disciplines of its staff and postgraduate students to address the environmental challenges of the minerals industry with quality science. Through working closely with industry, governments and communities, we aim to translate research outcomes into practices that will lead to the continual improvement of rehabilitation and environmental outcomes for a sustainable future.

The CMLR has a team of highly skilled professionals involved in broad research and training projects with mining companies, industry bodies and government departments in Australia and around the world, and focuses on the key issues facing modern mining and minerals processing industries.

Current research projects fall into 3 categories:

  • Ecosystem research
  • Mine closure and post mining land-uses research
  • Mine waste management research
The Centre's director is Professor David Mulligan. He may be contacted at d.mulligan@cmlr.uq.edu.au
