HiSeis was established in 2009 to commercialise the work of Curtin professors Anton Kepic and Milovn Urosevic that enabled the application of seismic technology to minerals exploration.
While seismic had traditionally been used in oil and gas exploration, the technique was limited in mining due to properties of the hard rock geology usually associated with minerals.
The research team was able to overcome those limitations and HiSeis has grown into a thriving mining services supplier with operations around the globe.
Curtin University will keep a minority position in the company and continue to provide research support to it.
HiSeis clients include Northern Star Resources, Independence Group, Evolution Mining, Lundin Mining and Anglogold Ashanti.<...
