CRC ORE to sponsor Physical Separation '17

We are delighted to announce that the Cooperative Research Centre for Optimising Resource Extraction (CRC ORE) is to sponsor Physical Separation '17 in Falmouth in June, joining co-sponsors Holman-Wilfley and Steinert Elektromagnetbau.
CRC ORE was founded under Australia's Cooperative Research Centres programme, and is supported by AMIRA, Anglo American, Bear Rock Solutions, BHP Billiton, Comet Strategy, CRC Mining, CSIRO, Curtin, DataMine Australia, Gekko Systems, Glencore, Hatch, IMDEX, JKTech, Kellogg’s Institute (KIN), METS Ignited, Mipac, MRIWA, Newcrest, NRC Canada, Orica, Queensland University of Technology (QUT), Sedgman, Sodern, Split Engineering, SRK Consulting Canada, Sumitomo, Teck, University of Adelaide, University of Queensland (UQ), University of Tasmania (UTAS) and Whittle Consulting.

This global consortium of Mining companies, Mining Equipment and Technology and Services (METS) companies and research institutions provides a platform for sharing information, drawing on a diverse, cross-section of expertise and decreasing the risks associated with the implementation of innovation on operational mining sites.
CRC ORE's goal is to transform the minerals sector by deploying innovative world-class technology to effect a step change in value across the whole-of-mine system, by focusing on radically improving the productivity, energy and water signatures of mining operations. They are also dedicated to reversing the ‘conventional wisdom’ of grade decline through new gangue rejection techniques.
The group is determined to unlock the synergies of existing and latent technology already available which has not been integrated on mining sites. They also wish to develop co-creation partnerships to access and implement emerging technologies from other industrial sectors.
CRC ORE is a not for profit organisation funded by the Australian Federal Government and the global minerals industry, and after its initial 5-year funding term, which commended in 2010, was awarded a further 6-years of funding until July 2021.
MEI looks forward to a continuing involvement with this worthy and ambitious venture.
