Even with improved recycling rates and global efforts towards sustainability and circular economy, we will likely continue to explore and exploit natural resources for decades. However, the mining and mineral resource business has become more competitive.
Exploration companies face challenges to discover new deposits that are worth exploiting, and mining companies need to operate with tight profit margins, all while increasingly stringent environmental regulations are being imposed. Here, reliable analytical equipment plays a key role for a profitable and “green” mining operation.
In this two-part webinar series, we talk about X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) spectrometry as a versatile elemental analysis tool for geological and mining applications. Our panelists present Bruker’s XRF analytical solutions for mineral exploration, extraction and grade control. They show real-world analytical examples, explain performance differences between EDXRF and WDXRF, and recommend sample preparation methods.
