Analytical solutions for base metals mining

XRF and XRD are already well established techniques in the base metals industry for the analysis of ores, concentrates and tailings. In this webinar we will discuss improvements and alternative uses of the techniques to facilitate improved process control and therefore better recoveries. Technical information, supported by case studies, will be discussed alongside the commercial benefits of the techniques.
This webinar targets the base metal mining and processing community, research- and service laboratories and academic institutions focused on base metal mining.
