Mineral Testing & Analysis
Grinding Solutions offers a comprehensive range of mineral testing and analysis services through a combination of in-house analysis and outsourcing. The company provides analytical services for all types of samples from drill core or trench samples through to process route and bench/pilot scale for laboratory testing and consultancy verification. This includes particle size analysis, chemical, trace element, mineralogical and physical analysis as well as liberation assessments and metal assays.
Grinding Solutions has developed strong relationships with accredited external analytical laboratories which allows for other more specific and niche mineral testing which cannot currently be carried out in-house. We offer the following analytical services:
- Particle size analysis (Malvern Mastersizer 3000)
- Microscopy Services (ZEISS SteREO Discovery.V8)
- Quantitative mineralogy (QEMSCAN, Zeiss Mineralogic)
- Chemical assays
- Trace elements analysis
We received a Grant from the BIG2 project funded from the ERDF as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020 which partly funded our new XRF which we commissioned in November 2016. Since then, the XRF has enabled us to provide a faster project turnaround for our clients, break into new national and international markets and employ 1 new members of staff.
