XPS Expert Process Solutions provides metallurgical consulting, technology, and testing services to the global mining industry. The origin of the group dates back to the 1940s, starting in Sudbury, Ontario as the Falconbridge Technology Centre (FTC), an internal department of Falconbridge Ltd. that supported the nickel mining operation. The centre developed over the decades into a full-fledged metallurgical testing operation. Following the merger of Falconbridge and Noranda in 2005, the Falconbridge Technology Centre combined the expertise of its sister organization, the Noranda Research Centre, adding further expertise and capability in process support and development.
