Nextore CEO, Chris Beal, won first prize in IMARC 2018’s inaugural METS to Miners & Engineers’ Pitch Battle, beating an impressive field of contenders with exciting technologies for the mining industry.

Chris was strongly commended for his presentation, demonstrating the impact that NextOre’s advanced MR (Magnetic Resonance) sensing technology could have for bulk sorting applications in the sector.

Industry panellists judged the award on the depth of the technology, as well as its potential to generate both value and change in the mining industry.

CSIRO’s crucial role in developing new and game-changing technologies, such as MR, was highlighted, in another clear demonstration of its value to Australian industry.

NextOre was supported at IMARC 2018 by RFC Ambrian and Advisian Digital, its commercialisation partners.
