Work Flow.

Micro-XRF has the potential to effortlessly slide into existing work flows.

This exciting technology will not only save your project precious time, it will also save you on cost. 

This is an example of how micro-XRF can benefit a mining and exploration project workflow.

Use of Micro-XRF on samples

Samples of interest are then taken and scanned using the micro-XRF.

From these scans elemental maps are created. These maps show the chemical composition of the sample, specifically where elements are most concentrated and where they appear throughout the whole sample.


Further to this, mineral maps can be created through the use of AMICS. This shows where certain minerals lie within the sample and can answer many burning questions. 


Further Processing

If more questions are found that are outside of what the portable XRF and the micro-XRF can achieve, further processing may be required. 

This would involve the use of such techniques like SEM.

Samples collected

Samples are taken from the chosen project site and packaged up.  

At this stage geological descriptions of samples are taken. 


Use of Portable XRF on samples

To understand the elemental composition of the samples portable XRF scans are conducted. 


This technique allows the opportunity to see what are the potentials involved with the samples.
