Mineral Liberation AnalysisAutomated mineral characterisation

  • Reporting modal mineralogy
  • Liberation yields
  • Mineral locking and association
  • Particle and grain size distribution



  • Precious metal recovery (PGM)
  • Base metal recovery
  • Iron ore characterisation
  • Coal (mineral impurity analysis)


  • High speed acquisition using SDD technology
