Analysis of Copper in Ore using a FAST Flame Sample Automation System

Introduction

One of the major challenges in the mining industry occurs early on the in the exploration phase, when determining where to dig. To establish if an area as viable, drilling and sample collection ensues at high volumes, necessitating rapid, accurate and repeatable analyses for minerals and metals of interest.

Automated sample handling solutions such as the FAST Flame 2 sample automation system paired with an Atomic Absorption Spectrometer is discussed here, as crucial components for a high throughput mining setting.
