On receiving the award, Amelia commented that 'I am very thankful for this opportunity to the AusIMM, BHP, and EIANZ. With this funding, I will be able to add practical information to my PhD thesis that is going to be beneficial for both academia and industry since I am investigating the use of novel phytotechnologies to reclaim abandoned mine wastes. With this award, I will be able to conduct research and specialised analysis in external laboratories, such as the speciation of arsenic in plants and tailings.'
