ALP commits $3.6 million to build the Mackay based Resources Centre of Excellence

17-Nov-2017 Resource Industry Network is delighted to receive news this afternoon that the ALP has committed $3.6 million from the Jobs and Regional Growth Fund for a Resources Centre of Excellence in Mackay.

We are extremely pleased to now have bi-partisan support for our Centre of Excellence, a facility that will ensure our region continues to be a world leader in the METS area.

The centre will be the hub that brings together research, technology development, education, training and testing, while showcasing this region on the domestic and world stage. It will be a multi-user facility for industry, universities, government and medical institutions that will facilitate collaboration and accelerate ideas to market by providing access to a realistic simulated underground mining environment.
