WA Police: Source Certain technology determines origin of stolen gold in Goldfields heist

Our involvement with the Western Australia Police in June 2020 helped in the successful prosecution of three men involved in a gold heist in outback WA. Gold was found at four different locations, and was believed to have come from the mine robbed in April. Our gold fingerprinting technology was used to analyse samples to determine if they came from the one mine site.

The origins of our technology lie in gold fingerprinting but are also widely applied to verify the provenance of products in a multitude of food and non-food industries.
