Preparation Laboratory

We have an ALS mobile sample preparation lab that is housed in a standard 10 x 20 foot converted shipping container. (

Acquired from Vale DRC, a highly reputable company, our preparation laboratory is equipped with :

  • Primary jaw crushers
  • Pulverizers
  • Rotary and/or riffle splitters
  • Working stations
  • Dust collection
  • Electric drying oven including carts
  • Heavy duty air compressor
  • Core cutting
  • Core layout and photography
  • Diesel powered generator package (100 kVA, optional)
  • Secure Data Management – LIMS, Webtrieve™, CoreViewer™

The prepared samples are analysed with a Niton XL3t. Their results give us very good approximate concentration of the mineral elements contained in each sample tested with a +-2sigma allowable error.

Our laboratory prepares a wide range of samples including soil, stream sediments, rock chips, drill core, termites, trench pits and grouter.
