Over the years, several successful research projects have been developed, also in collaboration with AMIRA International. In particular, the AMIRA P260 project on minerals flotation has delivered significant returns to the project sponsors. An independent assessment of the project by RMDSTEM Ltd reported that the net value to AMIRA P260 sponsors from the project had exceeded A$ 1 billion by 2012. This success, and the continued industry support of P260, has been due to the project’s blend of strong fundamentals and real world, mineral processing engineering.
