Electronic Waste

  Electronic waste samples are from old cellphones and other electronic devices which have been broken into small pieces. Assay labs will not test these as they may contaminate other samples. There is also a need to detect how much gold these samples contain without destroying the sample in an assay. Mineral Insights is able to take 2.3 mm x […]

Ore Processing

Mineral Insights can estimate the gold concentration of drill core, tailings and pulps. It can measure the relationship between gold and its host minerals including pyrite, chalcopyrite, galena and sphalerite. It can also produce histograms of gold particle shape and size. This information can be used to optimize ore processing and to maximize gold recovery. […]

Mining

Since the Mineral Insights unit is portable it can be used near the mining face to detect gold and provide an estimate of the gold concentration. This provides information about where the gold grade is highest and where mining should be focused, thereby maximizing the grade of the ore and increasing profitability.   This shows […]

Exploration

Detects minerals optically based on the reflectance, spatial information and unique colour of minerals on-site without waiting for assay results Determines which associated minerals to explore for in a particular deposit including pyrite and chalcopyrite Mineral Insigts provides geologists with the information to develop an optimal exploration plan Saves exploration time and expense, and provides a better chance […]
