Mining3 welcomes new member South32

March 10, 2020,

Mining3 starts the year by welcoming its newest member South32. This recent addition further expands our diverse membership base of future facing Research Organisations, Mining and METS companies looking to transform the way we mine.

South32 is a globally diversified mining and metals company. They join existing Mining3 members AngloGold Ashanti; Newcrest; Oz Minerals; Vale; Caterpillar; Dyno Nobel, Komatsu, University of Queensland, Curtin University, CSIRO and Queensland University of Technology.

Mining3 CEO, Professor Paul Lever, welcomed the new member, stating “South32 is a well respected organisation with a diverse portfolio with the opportunity to engage in a number of meaningful projects into the future. We’re very much looking forward to working more closely with their team”.

For over two decades Mining3 has been researching and developing world-class, industry-led innovations. Our long history demonstrates a confidence in the quality of our research, while our internationally respected members steer our research roadmap to industry identified problems. This shortens the innovation cycle and provides solutions to the industry more quickly.

Mining3 understands that effective collaboration is by far the most powerful instrument of innovation, and therefore welcomes South32.

“We welcome South32 as a mining company member to further strengthen our collective research and innovation capabilities,” Prof Lever 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 resolve the mining industry’s biggest challenges.
