Orexplore and the BHP powered TAD team

Our team are currently at PDAC in Toronto with the BHP powered Think & Act Differently (TAD) team.

TAD is disrupting and transforming the global mining industry as we know it, by challenging the status quo, solving complex mining problems, and creating value through sustainable and responsible resource development.

Orexplore is proud to be part of the initiative, allowing us to develop, field-test and advance our new technology solutions in real-world mining environments, first at Kalkaroo (Oz Minerals) in 2022, and now at BHP’s Carrapateena mine site in South Australia.

Working with BHP in the South Australian Copper province, Orexplore is demonstrating the potential of its technology to unlock new geotechnical and structural knowledge to assist with the company’s block cave expansion and add value. Our solutions are helping the company to reduce future mine design and operational risks through improved data quality and a more comprehensive understanding of rock-characterization, paving the way for a safer, more sustainable, and profitable operation.

The TAD program is a great example of how collaboration can unlock innovation, driving sustainability, technological progress, and business success in the mining sector. At Orexplore, we’re thrilled to be part of this unique and forward-thinking ecosystem.
