The predictive mineral discovery Cooperative Research Centre (pmd*CRC) was established to generate a fundamental shift in exploration practice and cost effectiveness by developing a vastly improved comprehension of mineralising processes and a four dimensional understanding of the evolution of the geology of mineralised terranes.

The pmd*CRC was conceived by industry in partnership with the geological research community to focus research on issues of critical importance to ore discovery.

The pmd*CRC formally ceased to exist on 30 June 2008. For more information visit pmd*CRC.
