CET a partner in the new $215 million MinEx CRC

by Corinne Debat | Apr 10, 2018
The MinEx CRC has been granted $50 million to boost for mineral exploration research in Australia, and this funding is backed up by industry and the research partners by a further $165 million. The CET and School of Earth Sciences will be represented by Mark Jessell and Mark Lindsay who jointly lead the Automated 3D Modelling Project which will be developing new techniques to reduce the time taken from receiving drilling data to constructing probabilistic and objective geological models.
