Mineral Insights detects gold and minerals from a single measurement on unpolished drill core.
The information provided by this Mineral Insights measurement can be used to accelerate gold and mineral exploration, and to increase gold and mineral recovery and profitability for operations at a mine.
Mineral Insights versus Assay Grade
A comparison of Mineral Insights gold concentrations to assay gold grades from 0.5 ppm to 50 ppm which correlate well. The Mineral Insights grades are an average of 30 Mineral Insight measurement areas.
Gold on Pyrite
(Left) Gold shown as magenta on a pyrite grain measured by Mineral Insights. (Right) The same gold particles and pyrite grain measured by a scanning electron microscope (SEM). Mineral Insights moves the gold particle imaging capabilities of a SEM into the field.
High Grade Gold
(Top) Gold particles in a high grade sample as seen by an optical microscope. (Bottom) the same gold particles detected by Mineral Insights. The Gold Sniffer detects all the gold particles.
Gold in Quartz
Mineral Insights detects the surface features of a gold particle in quartz measuring 74 microns x 81 microns with micron resolution of detail (gold shown as magenta). Each pixel is 1.6 microns x 1.6 microns.
The mineral sample below was cut by a diamond saw and is unpolished.
Gold in Pulp
The gold particle is indicated by the red cross near the center of the picture.
