AngloGold Ashanti (2015-2016)
AngloGold Ashanti Pty Ltd (AGA) is providing sponsorship (2015-2016), samples and site data for the PhD study of Alex Opitz on the development of an integrated approach for ARD prediction from waste rock. Support is being provided for the set-up and operation of field kinetic tests for the validation of the biokinetic test developed by CeBER. The knowledge generated by this project will inform the mine and environmental management plan for the site, by developing a better understanding of the long term ARD risks associated with the disposal of mine waste.
A new partnership to co-develop resilience and innovation for sustainability that will involve trans-disciplinary research, education and training, and stake holder and community engagement is being developed with sustainability manager for AGA, Dr Brian Chicksen.
