World-class geochemical assay and testing services

Our network of mineral laboratory facilities offer world-class geochemical assay and testing services, including sample preparation, fire assay and precious metal analysis, exploration geochemistry, environmental services, mine-site laboratories, coal testing and inspection, consulting services, robotics and automated laboratory systems.

Advice, inspection and analytical testing for the mining sector

We offer inspection, analytical testing and advisory services to the minerals, exploration, ore and mining industries. Through our global network of laboratories, we provide a wide range of analytical services for minerals, including precious metals, base metals and their raw content, such as iron ore, bauxite, coal and coke, as well as bulk commodities. We also conduct environmental monitoring, and offer marine and trade-related inspection and services.

Mineral sample preparation

Genalysis Laboratory Services provides mineral sample preparation services. The production of a homogeneous sub-sample, representative of the material submitted to the laboratory, is the primary purpose of sample preparation. Correct preparation is critical to obtaining meaningful analytical results.

The selection of the specific sample preparation procedures will depend on the type and size of the sample, the mineralogy as well as the client’s analytical and budgetary requirements.

Precious metals analysis

Intertek understands the processes and in-depth analytical requirements involved in supporting precious metals mineral exploration, including resource estimation, and the issues facing explorers when analysing for precious metals.

Geochemical testing for the minerals exploration industry

The advent of sensitive, rapid throughput instrumentation such as ICP-OES and ICP-MS used to complement one another has revolutionised exploration geochemistry in the last two decades. Large multi-element packages with detection limits commensurate with crustal abundances of the analytes are available at Intertek for exploration purposes at affordable prices.

Limited AAS and ICP-OES suites are also available to suit the requirements of particular programs. A variety of digests are offered which include multi-purpose aqua regia, two and four acid ‘total’ digests along with specialised biogeochemical and partial digests specifically for greenfield exploration.

Ore grade analysis

The ore grade methods offered by Intertek are typically used in advanced exploration and for the evaluation of specific targets. The diverse suite of methods offered include those used for base metal and industrial mineral resource estimation as well as fusion methods useful for characterisation of geological samples in late stage exploration programs where total dissolution of the sample is required.

Minerals environmental testing services

Intertek’s environmental laboratory provides support to the minerals industry by testing environmental samples to governmental, regulatory and industry standards.
