CRC ORE is a not for profit organisation funded by the Australian Federal Government and the global minerals industry. It aims to ‘Optimise Resource Extraction’ through site implementation of step-change innovation to improve overall productivity.
CRC ORE undertakes and promotes technology development and implementation for the global minerals industry. Its prime directive is to identify and implement innovation that can improve operational value and reverse the marked trend of declining productivity over the last decade.
CRC ORE has an applied innovation, technology development and technology transfer focus rather than fundamental research. This is based on the view that there is abundant existing and latent technology already available which has not been integrated on mining sites or needs to be accessed from other sectors. CRC ORE’s management and board has extensive mining industry experience and understand the operational challenges of business improvement.
