In the world of minerals, the ALS metallurgy portfolio of experience is extensive, including (but not limited to) the ore types below:
- Base metal deposits including copper, cobalt, lead, zinc, molybdenum, and manganese
- Iron ore – magnetite, hematite, and goethite
- Gold ore, including other precious metals, silver, and platinum group metals
- Nickel ore – laterite and sulphide ores
- Uranium and thorium ores
- Rare earth minerals
- Mineral sands
- Industrial minerals
- Tungsten and tin
This list of ores is not exhaustive, so our metallurgists are available to discuss processing and extraction situations to develop customised solutions, no matter what you’re mining.
Our team of expert metallurgists, mineralogists, chemists, and technologists design specifically tailored programs of testwork for each unique mining project. These metallurgical testwork studies provide ore characterisation to allow process flowsheet development to be optimised and implemented for each target metal, mineral, and commodity.
