Will Reid - Global Development Strategy Manager - December 14, 2022

Coming up with new ideas is hard, coming up with new ideas that work is even tougher. Bringing those ideas to market introduces another dimension of production, distribution and commercial considerations.

Keen to collaborate with like-minded organisations around mining technology research, in 2019 Maptek joined the Integrated Mining Consortium funded by the Premier of South Australia. High on the agenda alongside finding innovative answers to intractable problems, was the need to identify key steps to bring those ideas to market where they can deliver value to industry.
