The hardware component of the project was funded via the Australian Research Council with support from Curtin University, the Geological Survey of Western Australia, University of Western Australia and Murdoch University. One avenue being considered is the public documentation of WA’s mineral resources. J., Curran M., Edwards R., Faluvegi G., Ghan S., Horowitz L. The project is being jointly run between the John de Laeter Centre, Curtin University Library and Curtin Information Technology Services. Journal of Analytical Atomic Spectrometry, 29, 981-989. It is hoped that by allowing free, open access to this information, further interest in developing domestic mineral reserves will be stimulated and create a more varied and sustainable mineral economy.
In WA’s capital Perth, the state government is sitting on a collection of over 2,000 heavy mineral concentrate samples.
These have been systematically collected and meticulously catalogued by the Geological Survey of Western Australia (GSWA) over the last 30 years of geological mapping. Soil Science Society of America, Book Series 9, Chapter 13.
However, the record of Precambrian impacts is poorly constrained due to the dynamic nature of plate tectonics, erosion and deposition of younger rocks, which may destroy or cover the evidence of ancient impacts. After delivering a presentation on their recently completed Digital Mineralogy Library project, the Jd LC hosts invited their visitors to offer feedback and discuss opportunities for new projects to further assist researchers in managing and disseminating high-value geochemistry datasets. J., Curran M., Edwards R., Faluvegi G., Ghan S., Horowitz L. R., Ming J., Myhre G., Nagashima T., Naik V., Rumbold S. B., Sudo K., Takemura T., Thevenon F., Xu B., Yoon J.-H.
The reidite was discovered using advanced mineral characterisation technologies housed in the John De Laeter Centre (Jd LC) at Curtin University. The response was positive with many participants sharing their views on the importance of data management and discovery, and recognising the contribution that the Jd LC has made in this area.

Professor Reddy used a technique called electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) to effectively discriminate between reidite and its compositionally identical host zircon. Dr Lesley Wyborn (NCI) was "pleased to see the Jd LC and the community making progress in achieving what [she] has been trying to achieve for the last 30 years in Australian Geochemistry Laboratories ". Analytical pyrolysis for determining the molecular composition of contemporary monosulfidic black ooze.
