AMC announced as finalist for METS Ignited Collaboration Award

31-Oct-2017

South32, AMC Consultants and JKTech were announced as finalists for this year's METS Ignited Collaboration Award at the opening of the 4th International Mining and Resources Conference (IMARC) at the Melbourne Convention Centre. 

Speaking at the conference, METS Ignited CEO Ric Gros praised the quality of the projects proposed.

“METS Ignited is committed to fostering ways to assist METS companies and miners to collaborate towards common goals and create step-changes within the mining innovation ecosystem,” Mr Gros said. “Collaboration underpins the continued success of the Australian METS and mining sectors.”

The Award, in its second year, acknowledges and recognizes organizations that contribute to a culture of collaboration within the mining innovation ecosystem and achieve mutual business gains as a result of successful collaboration.

About South32, AMC, and JKTech's project

South32, AMC, and JKTech are collaborating on a project to improve operating efficiency at South32’s Cannington Mine in Queensland.

The project is an Enterprise Risk Optimization (ERO) incorporating advanced geometallurgy, and is focussed on delivering better value from the Cannington ore body by delivering a mine-to-market solution. The collaboration has broken down technical silos between geology, processing, mining, finance and marketing teams. It has focussed on delivering better value to customers and South32 by linking geometallurgy processes to mine planning and customer requirements.

The collaboration teams’ combined hope is that these developments will help increase industry acceptance of fully integrated enterprise optimization, incorporating risk, and the use of geometallurgy.

“We continuously look at ways we can improve operating efficiency. With each party contributing their unique skills and working together to combine advanced geometallurgical approaches and enterprise risk optimization, we have a common understanding of what is possible and, together, what we can make possible,” South32 Study Manager Andrew Strickland said.

The winner will be announced at the IMARC Gala Dinner sponsored by METS Ignited on Wednesday, 1 November 2017.
