Ever wonder how finished metal is extracted from rock at a profit? It takes technical expertise, energy, manpower, perseverance and understanding of financial drivers of the business. At XPS, we design and optimize all the processes and equipment that all miners like Glencore, Vale, Teck, Barrick use to produce metals that they sell for cash. We work with the operators and project teams to reduce costs of production and increase the recoveries of the metals that improve bottom line margins. We are metallurgical engineers and technologists with years of operating experience. We can help your company improve profitability and grow.

In order to improve a process it is necessary to measure and “benchmark” existing conditions and production results. Material handling applications in mining and mineral processing have been a challenge in the past because attempts to “quantify” production were usually disruptive and “grab samples” not necessarily representative of total production.
New technology allows you to track “size, shape and material volume” in real time in a non-disruptive, automated manner that permits optimization and process control opportunities.
This innovative technology lends itself to explosives selection, blast optimization, fragmentation analysis, crusher control, maintenance management, energy reduction, remote size measurement sensing and quality control.
We work with explosives manufacturers, aggregate producers, mining companies, metallurgists, environmental, military and aerospace groups to provide data technology to enable better decisions.
We have 20 years of experience and our motto is “Because you can’t manage what you can’t measure!”

Douglas Morrison

President, CEO | Centre for Excellence in Mining Innovation (CEMI) | Sudbury

CEMI is dedicated to making mining safer, more productive and more profitable.
We work with mining companies, service companies and researchers to develop technologies that will help mines find more ore, operate more effectively and safely and have a more benign impact on the environment. Sometimes this means new knowledge (research), sometimes it means making better use of older ideas and it always means involving business acumen to bring something new to market.
