The Edison Ore Milling Syndicate, Ltd., was organized in London on February 24, 1898, to exploit Edison's ore milling patents in all countries except the United States and Canada. The company used Edison's patents and ore milling designs when developing iron deposits in the Dunderland River valley, near Mo, Norway. It also tried to promote the use of Edison's ore milling technologies in diamond crushing, gold separation, and cement manufacturing. In August 1909 the company entered liquidation.
