JKTech delivers world class solutions to the mining industry by providing products and services in ore characterisation and process improvement within all areas of the life-of-mine cycle including geology, mining, mineral processing and sustainability.

As the technology transfer company for the Sustainable Minerals Institute (SMI), JKTech has access to leading edge technologies and methodologies. Our holistic, whole of mine approach allows our consultants to optimise our customers processes which increase throughput and production and lead to a more sustainable project.

Technology transfer covers a range of potential delivery mechanisms, including:

  • Commercialisation via spin-off companies, sales of IP and technology licensing
  • In-house JKTech expertise delivered in the form of consulting, specialist products, metallurgical laboratory services and professional development activities directed towards improving the productivity and profitability of mining and mineral processing operations.

Consulting: An experienced team of specialists conduct advanced process performance monitoring and utilise JKTech’s software tools to provide process simulation services for design and optimisation to improve mineral processing plant productivity.

  • Comminution - using JKSimMet and many years of experience, JKTech can quickly and effectively assess comminution plant performance and provide clients with optimisation and design strategies.
  • Flotation - JKTech can evaluate the flotation process and improve performance, involving JKSimFloat and new specialist equipment.
  • Mine-to-mill - building on recent research outcomes, JKTech can provide a complete core-to-concentrate evaluation tool including geometallurgy, blasting, mine planning, comminution and flotation circuit performance.
  • Metallurgical support - JKTech provides metallurgical and technical support services to processing plants lacking onsite metallurgical guidance.
  • Geometallurgy Consulting - JKTech, together with our strategic alliance partner QG, offer the Geomet® system to proactively improve mining process effectiveness and risk management.
  • Risk Management Services - JKTech provides Risk Management Services, focussing on training, expertise and project management, which lead to reduced risk.
  • Sustainability - JKTech, together with our subsiduary SUSOP Pty Ltd, offer consulting and training services in the key sustainable areas of safety, water, environment and social responsibility.

Products: Technology tools which incorporate proven innovations from research to increase mine site profitability.
