The Consortium brings together the research, industry knowledge and facilities of our partners, to lead a targeted program of research and translation projects.

  • Lowering the barriers between South Australian mining, engineering and technology services (METS) and mining companies to foster cooperation and innovation
  • Preparing the next generation workforce.

End user partners - These are exploration, mining and minerals processing companies, and they will ultimately use the products and systems the Consortium creates. Without these partners, we wouldn’t have a consortium. 

Translation partners - These are METS companies that are experts in sensors, data analytics, process control, modelling, optimisation and mine operations. Their key role is to ‘translate’ research into commercialisable products and services. 

Research partners - The University of Adelaide and the University of South Australia bring expertise in resource modelling, mining, geomechanics, sensors, data analytics, computer optimisation, process modelling, and mineral processing. 

Supporting partners - These are companies that provide assistance in evaluating PRIF technologies and identifying commercialisation opportunities, and pathways for research translation. Supporting partners also assist with the dissemination and marketing of the research outputs that are conducted by the PRIF Mining Consortium.
