Grade Engineering®


Site Application Studies

Grade Engineering® recognises that production is not the same as productivity, reconsidering the traditional view of mining and processing to identify opportunities to upgrade ore through the entire extraction process.

Focusing on maximising the amount of metal processed by removing waste as early as possible, Grade Engineering® can transform the economics of large, low grade mining operations.


Annual Assembly 2015

CRC ORE’s final Annual Assembly was held on the 25th March 2015, coinciding with the end of the Centre's first term in June.

The 2015 Annual Assembly showcased CRC ORE’s technical project, education, training and publication achievements over the first 5-year term.

Site based case studies play a major role in validating CRC ORE research and putting new technologies in the hands of industry end-users. These studies enable researchers to dramatically demonstrate the impact new methods and technologies will have on mining, transforming the mineral industry's approach to evaluation and extraction of mineral deposits.
