The contract is a multi-year collaboration agreement that will involve Southern Innovation in uncovering solutions to challenges BHP faces. Southern Innovation and BHP have worked together since 2015, having developed and commercialized technology that improves the performance of radiation-based analysis in mining applications. The company’s engagement with BHP over the last three years has successfully developed new-to-world METS technology and products in Australia and enabled Southern Innovation to double its workforce.
