The company is both a software company and a mining exploration company:
PIXE is a pre-compression filter that works alongside industry standard CODECS to improve the compression attributes of video transmission, especially targeting low bandwidth mobile and wireless sectors of the market. Kemeleon is a Multimedia Messaging Platform and Service that utilises the original Famous 3d animation engine to produce character based MMS messages. Our initial target markets being Asian Mobile Telephony operators. Both PIXE and Kemeleon have continued to perform below expectations and have struggled to gain industry and commercial acceptance. The Board are of the view that significant resources and funds would be required to further enhance both products and are, therefore, evaluating the future directions of these businesses.

Blaze is confident about the potential of their Yeelirrie tenements to host calcrete uranium mineralization. The Blaze Yeelirrie tenements contain extensions and palaeo catchment drainage areas from the world’s largest calcrete hosted uranium deposit (reported 52,000 tonnes of U3O8 at a grade of 1500ppm U3O8), owned by BHP Billiton (“BHPB”).
