New x-ray technology will bombard rock samples to help us locate gold and other metals.
A series of studies reveals how best to treat CSG water before re-injecting it underground to minimise contamination.
Thanks to new technology, future mining will happen mostly underground, be low impact and produce less waste.
Our hub in Chile is nurturing some exciting up and coming research talent. Meet Alfredo, Gabriella, and Nicolas.
Australia’s true mineral wealth is yet to be discovered, hidden deep beneath a thick cover of unconsolidated rock and soil, sediments and igneous rocks which have been laid down over hundreds of millions of years.
From three months to one hour, we’ve reduced the process of analysing the mineralogy and geochemistry of an exploration site using our new tech, Lab-at-Rig®.
A home-grown tech breakthrough is giving US gold miners access to previously untapped resources – and it has the potential to do the same for Australian miners too. Can you dig it?
By Tsuey Cham A few weeks ago we took a look at coal seam gas (CSG) and the hydraulic fracturing (‘fraccing’) process used in its extraction. You may have also heard of shale gas, another type of natural gas found deep underground. So what exactly makes them different? In terms of their gas content they’re
CSIRO through the Gas Industry Social and Environmental Research Alliance (GISERA) is undertaking a comprehensive study of methane seeps in the Surat basin. Our scientists are taking to the sky above the Surat basin in south-west Queensland to answer a big question – is coal seam gas (CSG) green? Not literally green, of course: CSG
