Australian Resources Research Centre

26 Dick Perry Avenue, Kensington (Technology Park, Perth) WA

Program Leader: Mineral Exploration in Areas of Cover. CRC LEME, CSIRO Exploration and Mining -

LEME's role is to apply regolith science to the problems facing Australian mineral explorers. LEME researchers address the challenges of mineral exploration in areas of transported regolith, undertaking a wide range of multi-disciplinary, integrated projects looking at 3D archietecture of the regolith. The projects focus on time depending physical, chemical, biological and hydrological processes that control geochemical dispersion of minerals in the regolith.
