Preparation and mineral separation facilities

Main content

Our department has state of the art thin-section preparation and mineral separation facilities.

Our laboratory uses an Artech automated thin section machine for high quality thin section preparation.

Mineral separation includes a complete separation line from crushing (disc mill), shaking table, magnetic separation to heavy liquids. For environmental and health concerns, we density-separate using SPT and DIM.
