Mat Brown (Chief Geologist) Xanadu Mines, “In the heart of our mining operation, the seamless integration of six state-of-the-art rigs is revolutionizing our approach to exploration. Every stick of core extracted undergoes meticulous analysis through our cutting-edge BoxScans technology. This invaluable data serves as the linchpin for developing precise geological, geometallurgical, and geotechnical models, which are instrumental in enhancing our current PFS process.

The impact is profound; the accuracy and depth of insights derived from BoxScans have become indispensable to our operations. With this technology at our fingertips, we've transcended traditional limitations, unlocking a new era of exploration efficiency. The ability to gather and analyse data at this level of granularity has not only streamlined our processes but has become the cornerstone of our success in developing comprehensive and robust models.

Marcus serves as the Managing Director of Phoenix Mining Technologies, a specialised Australian enterprise with a global reach, catering to the Mining Equipment, Technology & Services (METS) domain.

Prior to his current position, Marcus held a key leadership role at Olympus. Over the last 16 years, he has played a pivotal role in fostering the growth and widespread adoption of portable XRF and portable XRD technologies within this sector. Marcus’s early experience was garnered at a Western Australian gold mine in the early nineties, followed by his entry into the METS sector in January 2008 with JBS Mining.

My professional background started at the University, followed by the high-tech manufacturing industry and the Dutch contract research organisation TNO. Next to technical challenges, the most complex ones always were challenges of co-operation, especially among people from different organisations. I managed to solve several of those challenges, yielding excellent project results and happy people! Specialties and strengths: Innovation (creating original solutions for complex problems), organizing and motivating teams, strategic out-of-the-box thinking, developing new business and negotiating contracts.

A seasoned handheld XRF geochemistry professional with 23 years of experience, having served in various capacities such as consultant, contractor, distributor, and in sales and business development roles for XRF manufacturers. Over the last 15 years, I have been instrumental in advancing the global geochemistry business for InnovX/Olympus (now Evident), focusing on supporting exploration, mining, mineral processing, laboratory, academic, research, and environmental applications of handheld XRF. Recognized as a specialist in unique applications, my expertise extends to customer training, quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC), and the best practice application of XRF technology.
