What we do
We provide a dependable and proven range of quality mining reagents, from solid and bulk liquid commodities, through to more specialised, tailored products for un-interrupted supply to a large customer base, including Australia’s Metalliferous and Coal Mining Industries. We specialise in mining chemicals for flotation, mineral processing, solvent and metal extraction, and leaching processes, and provide application expertise, leading on-site technical support and logistics services to optimize our customer’s mining operations. InterChem’s capability also extends to other areas in the mining sector, including the availability of reagents for dust suppression, wire rope maintenance lubricants and specialist greases and lubricants for machinery, and selected water treatment reagents, including defoamers and coagulants.
Our key markets
InterChem’s key end markets include the supply of chemicals for mineral beneficiation in the gold, base metal sulfide and industrial metals, oxides, precious metal, lithium, mineral sands, rare earths and coal mining sectors. The shift to a clean energy system is set to drive a huge increase in the requirements for minerals such as lithium, nickel, cobalt, manganese, graphite, and rare earth elements, and InterChem is well placed as a supplier in searching for more efficient means of producing high-purity minerals with reduced cost and environmental impact.
InterChem works with key global chemical manufacturing partners and draws on its own strong synthesis and technical capabilities and significant supply chain networks to assist our customers in meeting their needs. InterChem services numerous mines in the Asia Pacific, PNG and ASEAN mining regions and works with our customers to provide un-interrupted reagent supply and solutions to improve productivity and reduce customers' operating costs.
Our diversity is our strength, and our motivation is to continually source and make new and improved products to better service our markets and geographical regions. From Greenfield projects to commissioning stages to continuous improvement activities, InterChem’s dedicated mining team supports flotation and hydrometallurgical process improvements for a variety of mineral systems, from complex ores to tailored plant applications.
