FMI CASC Automated XRD and NIR system


 

IMP provided this capability as an add-on to the original project, which included a fully automated sample preparation system for XRD and NIR analysis.

 

An additional aliquot is produced from the original sample preparation system provided several years ago, which is then transported by sky conveyor to the new facility. The new facility includes automated fine pulverizing, a specially developed press for automated XRD and NIR, and an integrated Thermo NIR analyzer and automated Bruker XRD's

 

The lab is divided into a robotics sample preparation area and an analytical section which contains 5 Bruker XRD and 2 ASD NIR units to facilitate quantitative mineralogical analysis on blast holes, geological samples and speciality materials. The design capacity of the lab is 500 XRD mineralogy and ~800 NIR clay & alteration mineral analyses per day, and the system handles sample material from all mine operations.

 

Full commissioning was achieved within 2 months after start-up. This is one of the largest XRD & NIR mineralogy lab facilities in the mining industry worldwide, and constitutes another step change toward lab automation. The lab is already operating a large central automated robotic chemical lab at this site which serves its regional mines.
