Over the next 10 years, this program will develop the data integration, forecasting and scale for CRC TiME partners to collate, share and undertake innovative research through data analytics platforms and knowledge hubs. By establishing demonstration and testing sites, this program will enable the tangible translation of solutions and technologies developed.


  • National pathways for closure innovation, demonstration testing and training: innovative and emerging technologies and solutions for mine closure can be readily tested, improved and demonstrated in the field.
  • Environmental data science analytics platforms and knowledge hubs: large complex mine environmental datasets are aggregated and analysed to enable new insights for proactive decision making risk reduction, and operational and closure planning.
