I. Why a mining laboratory?
The function of the mining laboratory is fundamental. In fact, the Mine/Analytical Laboratory partnership starts from the first phase of exploration for services in chemical and mineralogical analysis for the estimation of reserves, as well as for the optimization studies of the ore treatment process up to the rehabilitation of the mining sites after the mine closure. To meet the varied requirements of the mining industry, the service laboratory must be able to provide rapid and reliable results by handling a variety of complex analytical instruments.
A service laboratory specializes primarily in the analysis of rock and mineral resource samples over the life of a mine. However, environmental requirements have also led laboratories to develop services for monitoring the environmental status of mining sites, mainly air, water and soil monitoring.
