CRC ORE was a cooperative research centre established in 2010 to focus on Optimising Resource Extraction and delivering value to Australia by improving mine productivity, commercial return, and environmental outcomes.

Throughout its 11-year funding term, CRC ORE made significant progress in transforming the minerals sector by rapidly developing and integrating technology from concept to implementation.

On 30 June 2021, CRC ORE reached the end of its Federal Government funded term and allocated its remaining resources to establish a Future Research Program in collaboration with CSIRO.

The Future Research program will expand upon CRC ORE’s foundation research into the development of ore preconcentration technologies that can be deployed within the mine and ahead of the mineral processing plant. Further details on this program and participation opportunities can be found here.
