Geochemical Visualization in the Geologist's Toolkit: Using Micro-XRF and Automated Minerology in the Mineral Exploration Workflow

Rapid and reliable decision making in mineral exploration requires robust characterization of mineral and lithogeochemical trends. To enhance the geologist’s toolkit, micro-XRF and automated minerology can be powerful tools that enable geochemical visualization within the context of mineral distribution and texture. Join us for a short introduction to the incorporation of visual and quantitative geochemistry into mineral exploration workflows with Bruker’s M4 TORNADO micro-XRF, and the AMICS automated mineralogy platform for micro-XRF and SEM, including:

  • the use of micro-XRF and automated minerology for mineral and lithological characterization
  • geochemical and mineralogic vectoring
  • rapid identification of pathfinder or indicator minerals
  • characterization of ore mineralogy allowing ongoing assessment of deposit viability during exploration.

Bruker’s solutions work together across scales for a more complete understanding of lithology, mineralogy, and geochemistry.

Drill core is an important exploration tool. M4 TORNADO and AMICS allow the textural and geochemical characterization of drill core without destroying it.
Non-destructive visual geochemistry can be used to forward-model the economic of deposits, including large-particle liberation.
