This win follows NextOre’s success at the 2020 Australian Technology Competition where the company was presented the Mining Technologies Award.
NextOre is a breakthrough bulk ore sorting technology utilising magnetic resonance to provide accurate, whole-of-sample grade measurements and capable of operating at 5,000 tonnes per hour on the conveyor belt. NextOre delivers real time ore grade data which allows the selective rejection of waste material and enables enhanced transparency for downstream processing.
The KCA awards celebrate world-class research commercialisation that turns brilliant ideas into products and services to help humanity. “These awards celebrate the dedicated, collaborative efforts of leading technology transfer professionals across the country, who are changing lives through their commercialisation successes,” KCA Chair, Dr Erin Rayment.
This is the second consecutive year an RFC Ambrian partnership has been presented with a prestigious KCA award. The 2020 KCA Award for Research Commercialisation was secured by Chrysos, the first partnership between RFC Ambrian and the CSIRO which continues to experience rapid growth and gain industry acceptance. As reported in the AFR, Chrysos has recently completed a $50 million raising and is well placed for an ASX listing next year.
RFC Ambrian would like to extend a warm congratulations all KCA winners and nominees. It is an honour to be recognised among this field of excellent technologies and we look forward to the continued success of our technology commercialisation efforts.
