Run by the University of Queensland's Julius Kruttschnitt Mineral Research Centre
and brokered by AMIRA International, the 'P9' Project has proved so successful that every major Southern African platinum producer is represented, along with several other companies from other sectors, according to JKMRC Director Professor Tim Napier-Munn.
A new method of rock bolt safety testing for use in mining and civil engineering is being developed by the University of Queensland's Julius Kruttschnitt Mineral Research Centre
. The JKRockBoltTester looks set to replace the slow, and often unreliable, 'pull-out' test which is not routinely used in practice owing to its destructive nature.
The JKSimFloat program is based on more than 30 years of industrial research by the Julius Kruttschnitt Mineral Research Centre
and the CSIRO Division of Mineral and Process Engineering.
