Mining3 welcomes new member Dyno Nobel

Brisbane, 18 March 2019 – Mining3 welcomes Dyno Nobel as its newest member expanding our diverse membership base to include the global leader in commercial explosives.

As of the 1 March 2019 Incitec Pivot Limited (IPL) – the parent company to Dyno Nobel – signed the membership deed to collaborate with, and leverage the world-class research and development Mining3 offers.

Mining3 Chief Executive Officer, Prof Paul Lever said, “Mining3 hasn’t had an explosives company as a member before even though we have a strong focus in this area. Dyno Nobel will provide a greater level of insight into our blasting projects and assist in solving complex solutions for our near-future focused portfolio.”

Robert Rounsley, IPL’s newly appointed Chief Technology Officer commented that “We are actively building out Dyno Nobel’s technology development capability. We can offer our customers an even richer solution set and we believe collaborating with Mining3 and its members will accelerate this undertaking.”

A global leader with almost a century of history in the resources industry, with offices all around the world including Australia, the United States and Mexico, Dyno Nobel is a world-renowned explosives manufacturer with a strong customer focus and who prides itself in delivering Practical Innovation on the Ground today and in the future for its mining and resources customers. With significant internal research capability already, Dyno Nobel plans to leverage the Mining3 membership through the identification of, and collaboration in the development of new technologies important to their industry.

Wayne Stange, Dyno Nobel’s Vice President of Mining Technology said, “We’re looking forward to working closely with Mining3 and their members. There are several Mining3 projects that are aligned with our technology development initiatives.”

“Through our Mining3 membership we will be able to work with a range of researchers and METS to accelerate the development of transformational technology”, he said.

Mining3 membership is open to mining companies, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), mining equipment and technology services (METS), and universities—and enables them to be an intrinsic and influential part of an active cohort of members working to leverage the mining industry’s biggest opportunities and resolve its challenges.

“We welcome Dyno Nobel and look forward to the wide range of expertise and collaborative opportunities they bring to Mining3,” said Paul Lever.
