The company specialized in research, development, and implementation of technological advances in the mining industry for froth flotation, comminution, geometallurgical modeling, and advanced process control.

Woodgrove commenced the development of a novel new technology, the Staged Flotation Reactor (SFR). To prove commercial viability, Woodgrove installed and commissioned a Staged Flotation Reactor taking full throughput of a large copper concentrator.
