Resources and Chemistry Precinct
In 2009 the Department of Chemistry, along with the Chemistry Centre (WA)relocated to a new building in the Resources and Chemistry Precinct at the southern edge of the Curtin campus. The $110 million facility houses advanced teaching and research laboratories in resources, chemistry and related disciplines.
The department rejoins its colleagues at the adjacent Waterford site of the CSIRO Minerals Division, which is also undergoing expansion. The Department is also a member of the Parker Centre for Integrated Hydrometallurgical Solutions that has relocated to the Australian Minerals Research Centre next door.
