Mine Water and Environment Research Centre
The Mine Water and Environment Research (MiWER) Centre is a formal research centre based in Western Australia at ECU's Centre for Ecosystem Management.
We are an international team of highly qualified professional scientists with skills spanning ecology to chemistry all with an interest in the aquatic sciences.
Within the MiWER centre, staff apply their scientific knowledge and skills to researching applied and fundamental water quality issues surrounding the mining industry and mining legacies, in particular pit lakes. We often have opportunities for research collaborations with other research providers. We also have a high quality consultancy service to industry and government on environment management issues in the area of freshwater ecosystems, mining or otherwise.
