Routine Analytical Services and Analytical Method Development

Core’s assay laboratory provides in-house analytical services for our metallurgical testwork programs, high volume fast turn-around analytical services for our large metallurgical pilot plant trials, method development research to identify new analytical methods for complex or difficult matrices and routine analytical services for a broad range of external clients in the mining, chemical and process industries.

Core’s analytical method development team is first class and has several new analytical methods to its credit.

The management and staff at the laboratory have a strong commitment to quality as well as customer satisfaction and strive to provide quality work at industry-leading turn-around times and commercially competitive prices.
