What our clients say...
Simple sample preparation, fast turnaround times for high-quality results and improved outcomes related to health, environment and the community.
PhotonAssayᵀᴹ provides a significant advantage where large assay charge sizes are required, particularly in coarse gold mineralisation.
PhotonAssay's simple process reduces waste, involves fewer people, requires less technical training and reduces the likelihood of error
This award-winning technology is capable of rapidly and accurately scanning up to 500g of material at a time, an important capability when dealing with coarse gold systems.
PhotonAssayᵀᴹ yields efficiencies around simple sample preparation and fast turn-around times. Additionally, as a non-destructive methodology, it allows samples to be used for other post-assay analyses such as environmental or metallurgical testing.
Check-assays using the larger PhotonAssayᵀᴹ method identified the existence of coarse gold, highlighting the need for larger assay sample sizes to be representative.
