The Centre for Social Responsibility in Mining (CSRM) "was established by the University of Queensland in 2001 in response to growing interest in and debate about the role of the mining and minerals industry in contemporary society...

"CSRM has also worked for peak industry organisations, such as the Minerals Council of Australia (MCA), Queensland Resources Council (QRC) and the International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM), major global companies such as Rio Tinto, BHP Billiton, Newmont Mining and Xstrata as well as mid-tier companies like Lihir Gold Limited, with whom we have a major three-year research partnership. In addition, CSRM works with small to medium sized enterprises and exploration companies who are focused on improving their sustainability performance.

"CSRM collaborates on research projects with non-industry players such as NGOs and government, particularly where it aligns with the strategic direction of the centre. For example, in collaboration with Oxfam Australia, CSRM has undertaken pro-bono work on grievance mechanisms for the Australian mining industry operating offshore." [1]

"CSRM has multi-year agreements with two major mining companies: Rio Tinto and Lihir Gold Limited." [2]
