Amira Global member Oz Minerals is embracing the power of collaboration through its newly launched Think & Act Differently (TAD) opportunity incubator.  The TAD process aims to uncover opportunities to apply technology in unique ways that result in new, low-impact ways to mine and process minerals.

OZ Minerals Transformation Technologist Brett Triffett said that a major aspiration of the company is to produce products with the smallest environmental footprint possible and provide value to stakeholders.  With this in mind the first TAD incubator challenge, Ingenious Extraction was launched on February 16 and aims to discover new ways to extract metals like copper, gold, silver and cobalt from concentrates. 

The challenge runs for 8 weeks until April 9 and OZ Minerals would like to extend an invitation to other Amira members to join the challenge and share their ideas.   Once the challenge closes selected teams will be invited to collaborate and develop ideas further.

You can find out more about the challenge by watching the introductory video below and on the Oz Minerals website.
