Although numerous quarrying and mining operations are underway, the mineral resources are still relatively untapped.
Element offers a full-suite of ore and minerals analysis testing for the mining sector. We offer a wide range of in-house testing services that can help mining companies, and ore exporters to quickly and efficiently analyze mining targets and metal deposits.
Element provides an array of services, including:
- X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) Spectrometer - which produces the chemical composition and evaluation of specific mining targets for commodity minerals
- Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectroscopy (ICP OES) – where acid digestion of the sample is required to determine the chemical composition of industrial minerals.
The analysis reports generated during the exploration stage form the basis of resource estimation within a given area that, in turn, can assist the extraction plan of the mining company.
Materials we test
Minerals we can test for include:
- Iron Ore
- Chrome Ore
- Cement & Gypsum
