Our experts can analyze components of a low and a high-grade trace metals in various forms.

The grade control processes in exploration work involve diversified techniques ranging from sub ppb level to accurate resource estimation.

  Apart from the classical lead collection fire assay
  • Nickel sulphide collection fire assay
  • Screen fire assay
  • Aqua regia digest
  • Accelerated cyanide leaches or
  • Bulk leach extractable gold sampling techniques and tools

are also available for specific purposes.
