Who We Are
Empowering mining professionals with orebody learning applications
We’re PETRA, a global leader in the development of orebody learning software that leverages data fusion ore tracking and machine learning.
This kind of technology allows our customers to optimise the mining value chain, increase overall equipment efficiency and benefit from revolutionary accuracy of ore body knowledge at the granular level.
Our software is purpose built by mining professionals who are serious about seeking opportunities in creating value through geological variability. Our name “Petra” is from the Greek feminine word ‘petra’ meaning “stone, rock”.
Discover how PETRA’s software can help you extract value from your mining data.
Sponsored by the Minerals Council of Australia, PETRA contributes valuable course content via the edX platform - Digital Transformation of Mining (MINE5X)
The MINE5X interactive course has been designed and developed in consultation with PETRA and will deepen a student’s understanding of the mining sector with videos, expert insights, simulations, discussion forums and high quality learning material.
PETRA is collaborating with the University of Adelaide as an industry partner for the Australian Research Council Training Centre for Integrated Operations for Complex Resources. As an industry partner PETRA will assist the ARC Training Centre deliver training in the areas of data analytics and artificial intelligence – for automated, integrated and optimised mining. This includes providing postgraduate students with the opportunity to work on industry-linked interdisciplinary projects with leading researchers and mining industry partners.
PETRA is highly active and proud supporter of the Coalition for Energy Efficient Comminution and is very proud to have CEEC founding and current Director, Dr Zeljka Pokrajcic, Technical Director on our Leadership Team. PETRA is also very supportive of the volunteer work Zeljka does with CEEC in making mining more energy and water efficient. Water and energy efficiency are critical to the long term sustainability of our industry and we are proud to support the important Zeljka does with CEEC.
PETRA is an active member of the Global Mining Group, and Dr Penny Stewart, PETRA Managing Director volunteers her time on the AI Group Steering Committee where she aims to see mining develop guidelines for AI algorithm deployment.
