As part of our commitment to unearth a smarter way, AMC has joined CRC ORE as a METS Associate.

CRC ORE is the Cooperative Research Centre for Optimising Resource Extraction. It is jointly funded by industry and research participants and the Australian Federal Government. Industry participants include mining companies, Newcrest, BHP, Anglo American, AngloGold Ashanti, Glencore, Teck and Sumitomo, and METS companies (Mining, Engineering Technology and Services companies).

The primary objective of CRC ORE is to apply innovation to improve the productivity of mineral resource extraction. It achieves this by coordinating partnerships between mining companies, researchers and METS companies to focus on significant industry challenges. Current major areas of focus are the deployment of grade engineering to exploit natural ore heterogeneity, sensor-based “whole stream” integration, and the development of innovative methods to optimize whole of stream productivity.

Participation in CRC ORE allows AMC to match its capabilities and experience to collaborative opportunities with miners, researchers and other METS and to help shape the future of mine development and optimization.
