CRC ORE's project portfolio is delivered across five key areas. The first four programs are CRC ORE's research programs. Program 5 consists of projects being implemented at mine sites.

Each of CRC ORE's projects are designed to progress technologies through the widely used Technology Readiness Levels (TRL 1-9) scale of technology maturity, often referred to as ‘prototype to product’.
