Core Resources and Mineral Technologies’ partnership in the development and commercialisation phase of the Toowong Process has been recognised with a METS Ignited Collaboration Award for 2018.
The Toowong Process is a novel leaching technology that removes arsenic at the mine-site, and then “fixes” it in an environmentally safe and stable form that enables final disposal at the mine-site.
The Core Resources and Mineral Technologies partnership has involved a two-year, $2 million design and engineering work program to develop the technology to the stage where it is now ready for deployment.
Core Resources chief executive officer Dr Rob Coleman said the 2018 award followed the 2016 METS Ignited Collaboration Award which it received in partnership with Glencore Technology for the development, commercialisation and implementation of the Albion Process.
“Winning the METS Ignited award with Glenore Technology for the Albion Process and now winning the 2018 award with Mineral Technologies is testament to our team approach to working with industry leaders to bring innovation and world’s best practice to deliver step change solutions for the mining sector,” he said.
A collaboration between Unearthed and Newcrest Mining was also named a winner for the launch of the automated online platform, the Newcrest Crowd.
The METS Ignited Collaboration Award is now in its third year. More HERE
