The purchase aims to build on synergies between and Minalyze and Veracio’s existing technological capabilities, according to an announcement.

Veracio’s CEO JT Clark said: “This strategic transaction creates immense possibilities for Veracio and Minalyze.

“Combined expertise will be used to push boundaries that can produce a product portfolio going beyond anything previously available.”

Minalyze founders Annelie Lundstrom and Mikael Arthursson are expected to join Veracio’s leadership team on completion of the sale.

Lundstron said: “Together we believe this combination will enable us to radically accelerate what we have both achieved to date.

“The combination should also provide unique value to our customers while pushing the industry forward in ways not seen before.”
