Research Programs

The three research programs of MinEx CRC have been proposed by our Participants in order to address the threat of declining mineral discovery and realise the opportunity of novel drilling technologies.

Feature Program


The National Drilling Initiative (NDI) will manage and deliver drilling programs in multiple case study areas proposed by MinEx CRC’s partner geological survey organisations.  The NDI vision is to drill multiple holes in a region to map the regional geology and architecture and define the potential for mineral systems in 3D.
