Since graduating from The University of Queensland in 1987, David La Rosa spent 15 years at the Julius Kruttschnitt Mineral Research Centre (JKMRC) conducting mining research roles under several AMIRA projects and was responsible for instrumentation and software development for the Mining Research Group. Post JKRMC, David worked at Metso PTI for 9 years in various roles, and several years at CRC Ore as the Principal Mining Engineer, where he is focusing on Grade Engineering.

David is an inventor of multiple ore tracking technologies, including SmartTags and BMMs, where he used industry knowledge to practically solve complex problems. David co-founded OreControl Blasting Consultants to create systems for improving value for surface mines through optimising post-blast ore control.

There is always potential to innovate and improve a gadget or process, no matter how mature the technology may seem to be.
