IMDEX, the Precinct’s first major industry partner, is an ASX-listed leading global mining technology company that enables drilling contractors and resource companies to safely find, define and mine orebodies with precision and at speed. The company is headquartered in Perth and operates in all the world’s key mining regions.

IMDEX will use the purpose-built precinct to accelerate testing and development of its multi-sensor drill system and other technologies developed in Western Australia and designed for use in global mining operations. The IMDEX team at the AARP has built a Drill Pad which it will use and maintain as common user infrastructure within the precinct’s Dirt Lab Innovation Mine, offering testing and collaboration opportunities for other users.

While we operate globally and have an unrivalled presence on all major mining operations, WA is home to some of the world’s major mining companies so having the opportunity to develop and promote our technology locally is an additional benefit. We have plans for testing a range of IMDEX tools and technology developed by our research and development team here.
