Principal Investments

Compelling opportunities in disruptive technologies, commodities, and industrials

When circumstances have allowed, RFC Ambrian has taken the opportunity to partner with our clients’ businesses and other compelling opportunities in the natural resources sector. Our investments include positions in mining and resource extraction ventures and more recently, incubating disruptive technologies for the mineral extraction sector. These emerging technologies are redefining core processes in the gold mining supply chain as well as driving ore recovery efficiencies which lower operating costs, reduce environmental impact, and improve project economics.


Commercialisation & Creating Investment Opportunities

Along with our partners, RFC Ambrian has dedicated considerable resources to progressing the Chrysos and NextOre businesses, which are commercialising disruptive technologies developed by the world-leading research body CSIRO. These innovations are pushing the envelope of progress in the natural resources sector while improving sustainability and safety for adopters of the technology. Both are on track to create substantial wealth for investors and generate significant industry impact over the next decade.

Additionally, RFC Ambrian works with independent technology creators such as the industry veterans behind Conveyor Manufacturers Australia’s (CMA) simple yet elegant belt conveyor products. Like Chrysos and NextOre, CMA’s innovative conveyor designs reduce environmental footprint in natural resources and heavy industrial applications, while materially improving workforce safety.

RFC Ambrian is always searching for creative technology applications, and to this end formed Copper Technology Limited. CopperTech is licensed to use the NextOre sensing and sorting technology and can provide direct exposure to copper development projects which stand to benefit substantially from the application of this technology.

To support more standout Australian technologies,        RFC Ambrian has launched a dedicated impact investment fund, the Basic Industries Venture Fund.
