Geological Analysis (Mining/Minerals)
We routinely perform full scale analyses related to the discovery and extraction of a wide variety of commodity constituents from earth materials. We perform ultratrace analyses for baseline geochemical exploration and modeling in rock, soil, sediment, water and biota samples. In addition, we provide full analytical support for orebody evaluation, mineral beneficiation and recovery processes, concentrate and product purity, and site reclamation.
We also provide a variety of specialized soil analyses. Pricing depends on the required analysis, sample type and quantity. In addition to Elemental Analysis, we perform specialized tests such as Acid Base Potential, Cation Exchange Capacity, Sodium Adsorption Ratio, Particle Size, Exchangeable Acidity, Extractable Anions and Cations, Saturation Capacity, Sulfate Adsorption Isotherms, etc. We maintain a USDA permit to allow for processing of soil samples from agriculturally quarantined areas.
