Mining is a major contributor to the Australian economy however, while there are many thousands of mines, only a handful have been successfully closed. Mines that cannot be relinquished either stay with the mining company or are abandoned completely, tying up capital, degrading ecology and negatively impacting communities. There is a disconnect between the way mining and post-mine worlds interface and opportunities for economic re-purposing of assets and value generation to Australia’s economy
through closure are lost.
The Solution = Collaboration
Uniting to deliver a resilient post mine future – Our unique partnership model
CRC TiME brings together over 70 partners across all stakeholder groups who are contributing their networks, time and knowledge to enable change.
Over $130 million is being spent over the next 10 years on collaborative research and development projects by CRC TiME.
With national coordination and leadership under the umbrella of CRC TiME, we are creating opportunities to bring Australian innovation in the emerging mine closure sector to the global market. CRC TiME’s partnership is re-envisaging the mining cycle to incorporate post-mining opportunities, and provide evidence, tools and frameworks for more certainty and diversified
opportunities that will enable Just Transitions.
