Research Providers

While AMIRA International does not carry out research itself, it brokers collaborative projects between industry and world-leading research providers by leveraging available government and industry funds.

Importantly, AMIRA International projects are helping to build the technological and educational capacity of the countries where our Members have a presence.

We have discussions with wide range of internationally-recognised research providers who could potentially provide their expertise in AMIRA International projects. The following minerals research organisations are participating in active or developing projects:
