Geology & Exploration

Studying a landscape's physical structure, layout, rocks and mineralogy is the first and arguably one of the most important steps in the mining process. Whether performing generative or targeted exploration for determining mining sites, accurately predicting the quantities and concentrations of materials is critical. Both methods of exploration generate huge volumes, sometimes tens of thousands of samples per site, travelling from the field to your lab for analysis. A wide range of high-throughput sample analysis solutions is needed to handle the volumes and the diversity of the materials coming from the mining site. Additionally, the testing solutions utilized must be robust enough to withstand the continued introduction of dirty and corrosive materials.

Mining operations must also study and care for exploration and heavy excavation equipment, putting tribology studies of friction, wear, and lubrication central to analysis techniques. Researching and developing tribology innovations, analyzing physical characteristics or chemical profile, detecting wear and contaminants, or testing for fluid additives; trusted analytical testing solutions also keep mining operations up and running.

PerkinElmer's unique mining solutions are developed to meet these challenging conditions, in order to gain reliable and cost-effective insights and answers.
