Earlier this week, we were pleased to announce that Mining software-as-a-service provider, K2fly has purchased our Decipher Mining Solutions business.

Born within the Industrial’s Divison of Wesfarmers four years ago, Decipher developed several cloud-based software solutions for the mining and resources (Decipher Mining Solutions) and agriculture (DecipherAg) industries. The sale of Decipher Mining Solution does not affect DecipherAg, which continues to be owned by CSBP Fertilisers, and all products and services to growers and agronomists remains unchanged.

The relationship with K2fly was established a year ago after forming an alliance to combine our complementary technology strengths and build an integrated monitoring and governance platform for tailings storage facilities.

Nic Pollock, K2fly’s Chief Commerical Officer said:

“We have been partnered with Decipher for nearly a year now and we have found many synergies in our joint offering, go to market capabilities, and operational models that the acquisition was a logical combination. We are both lean startup companies and there is virtually no duplication and many upsides to the deal. We are pleased that Anthony Walker, the Decipher CEO, will be joining K2fly in a senior executive position as well as the core Decipher team.”

The Decipher team are looking forward to joining forces with the K2fly team, and working closely with new and existing clients to improve the monitoring and compliance outcomes for the mining industry.

Adding to this, Anthony Walker, Decipher CEO said:

“We have formed a very close working relationship with the K2fly team, and we all share a passion for delivering better ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) monitoring and compliance outcomes to the mining industry and the communities in which they operate. This transaction will dramatically increase our pace of delivery on these aspirations.”

In 2020, K2fly launched a suite of solution offerings to its predominantly mining customers globally and this acquisition adds solution breadth and customers specifically to their tailings monitoring and rehabilitation solutions as well as underlying platform capability and scalability.
