CRCMining is a fully incorporated joint venture between industry and university partners, and the Commonwealth government.
CRCMining is governed by a Board of Directors with three sub committees, the Research Committee, the Audit Committee and the Remuneration Committee. The Research Committee has four Technical Committees, one for each of the Centre's Program Areas. The Board is chaired by independent chairman, Dr Laurie Hammond.
The Board of Directors sets overall policy, determines the strategic direction for the Centre and oversees technology transfer and commercialisation activities through quarterly meetings. In consultation with the Research Committee, the Board also directs the research focus of the Centre.
Meeting quarterly, the Research Committee is the Centre’s working committee on research and development. The objectives of this committee are to:
• develop new projects according to industry’s needs.
• review progress of ongoing projects.
• divert resources between projects dependent on progress.
• review annually the entire research portfolio.
• make recommendations to the Board of Directors on project research funding for each new financial year.
The Audit and Risk Committee assists the Board in carrying out its duties in regard to financial reporting and legal compliance. The committee is comprised of three non-executive directors one of whom is the Board chair who also chairs the committee. The committee operates to Board approved terms of reference and charter. The committee meets three times a year.
The Remuneration Committee is comprised of three non-executive directors one of whom is the Board chair who also chairs the committee. It meets as and when required and is responsible for reviewing the remuneration of all senior staff.
The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) reports to the Board and is responsible for the Centre's research and the education programs.
