Sustainable Mining

Over the course of 12 years, Mitsubishi Development contributed $1.25M to the University of New South Wales (UNSW) Sydney, providing ongoing support to education programs in the field of Mining Engineering. Through its partnership with Mitsubishi Development, UNSW opened the Australian Centre for Sustainable Mining Practices (ACMSP), where a ‘Mitsubishi Chair’ oversaw research on new mining practices, and development and application of technologies and systems for sustainable mining initiatives, for nearly a decade.

In addition to its contribution to the ACSMP, Mitsubishi Development helped establish an Endowment Fund in 2005 that provides ongoing support for the “Mitsubishi Computing Laboratory”, rural scholarships for undergraduate students studying or proposing to study Mining Engineering at UNSW, and Postgraduate Research Scholarships for students studying Mining Engineering at UNSW.
