Using the most up to date techniques, ALS processes and analyzes large diameter and slim core programs through a large, dedicated laboratory. Coal exploration drilling programs rely on core analysis to understand the breakage behavior of the coal deposit and the potential products that can be beneficiated from the raw coal. The former assist in the design of a coal preparation plant and the latter determines the value of the deposit.
ALS has invested in a 9,000 m2 dedicated coal borecore laboratory. This facility has the capacity to concurrently process several large diameter and slim-core programs. Communications between the program owner and ALS is through a dedicated ALS project manager. This provides the client with clarity on work progress and the ability to swiftly adjust priorities as results are delivered.
