The two companies have worked together since 2015, with Southern Innovation developing technology that improves the performance of radiation-based analysis in mining applications.

The engagement between them has allowed Southern Innovation to develop new-to-world METS technology and double its workforce.

The company’s SITORO® technology performs digital pulse processing in a more efficient way than traditional methods, improving detection speed and accuracy.

Their technical expertise will be used by BHP to help uncover solutions to specific challenges in exploration activities.

BHP’s vice president of technology global transformation Rag Udd, said:

“Our continuing engagement with the METS sector ensures that our industry successfully adapts to technological change, while creating and sustaining global technological and skills leadership in key areas of mining and our supply chain.

“An internationally competitive, appropriately skilled and innovative METS sector is critical to help maintain Australia’s leading position in the global resources sector.”

“With this new research and ongoing product development work, we will be adding even more employees dedicated to this task with a view to redoubling our workforce over two years,” said Southern Innovation’s chief executive officer David Scoullar.
