An autonomous underground robotic platform to position, locate and survey drill holes, and measure deviation and material characteristics.
Mine Planning Optimisation
Aims to remove lengthy, fixed time interval decision making, people dependent scheduling and delayed execution of mining plans.
Real-time gold measurement systems and data management software to deliver an interconnected and more productive extraction process.
Hackathon, Accelerator Program
This innovation program engaged METS companies in collaborations with Tier 1 Mining clients and independent innovators.
The Energy Curves program assists Mining and METS companies to understand how to improve the energy efficiency of their comminution equipment.
CORE Innovation Hub
METS Ignited and NERA contributions will facilitate the accelerated growth of CORE Innovation Hub, linking the resources technology sector.
Electric Battery Underground
This project includes the integration of 3ME Technology designed and built battery systems into two underground vehicles.
Measurement While Drilling
Measurement While Drilling System for use with Reverse Circulation Drilling: The solution proposed is to provide hard rock miners a Log While Drilling capability for use with RC drill rigs.
Remote Grinding Optimisation
PIQ and OMC have entered into a Joint Venture contract arrangement (PIQ-OMC). Data streaming from clients’ processing plant historians will be set up to a secure cloud-based storage facility.
M2M Value Ignited
MaxMine, from Resolution Systems, is an IOT type solution which monitors and automatically analyses mobile fleet to identify and prioritise opportunities, then lock in and track improvements.
METS Career Pathway Program
METS Career Pathway Program to open it up to both male and female students studying STEM subjects.
CHS Continuous Haulage System
The Premron CHS Continuous Haulage System will revolutionise gateroad development in underground coal mines and provide safety and productivity enhancements to existing systems.
Pulp Chemistry Monitor
The on-line pump chemistry monitor (PCM®) was developed to measure the pulp chemistry and was installed in a number of copper concentrators (e.g. Phu Kham, Boddington, EHM, Prominent Hill, Peak and Ridgeway).
Environmental Mining Data Platform
Developing a multi-scale and multi-source environmental data platform to monitor, manage and reduce mining’s footprint.
Instrument the Bench
Material physical property measurements are provided at the time of blast hole drilling to inform decisions regarding blasting, screening and stockpiling, among others, before these materials are subject to processing.
The BHP-supported Living [email protected] is aimed at the pre-mine site stage of the development process, with a novel test-bed to develop and demonstrate products for real-world mine site testing.
The Ore Body Knowledge project originated from discussions between Miners and METS in the Austmine Co-Lab. The project aims to improve plant throughput by developing and trialling technologies to manage and distribute ore body information into the mining value chain.
Automated Oversize Detection
This niche project is focussed on the development and deployment of a low cost sensor and communications unit on mobile equipment.
