Founded by Jolimont Capital (Lex McArthur and Charles Gillies) with a track record of success in commercialising new technologies including 29 investments since 2003.

We have met with and reviewed over 300 companies in our travels to the locations indicated on the adjacent heat map.

These are assessed on how well and how quickly they can deliver productivity improvements and bring significant solutions for mining companies. The end result is to make life safer and easier for front-line operational managers and teams while adding value to the operation.
