Sharing the latest trends for mining and mineral companies

Malvern Panalytical is pleased to offer a two-day virtual workshop for the mining industry. This event brings together experts from the industry as well as our own experts as suppliers of the newest technologies to create value for mining and metal production.

Together with guest speakers we share knowledge for exploration to process optimization and environmental monitoring by improving the analysis of raw materials and process streams.

News and advances in X-ray fluorescence, X-Ray diffraction, on-line monitoring (CNA), particle size and morphology analysis, near infrared (NIR) characterization and sample preparation will be presented.

The two hour session each day will have the following focus:
July 23: In the Field and Mine: Advanced solutions for exploration and Grade Monitoring
July 24: In Process and Laboratory: Adding efficiency and automation to Ore processing and quality control

Are you working for a mining company or technical association? Are you a researcher, professor or professional seeking knowledge to increase recovery rates and efficiency? Then this event is designed for you. Especially with the current COVID-19 pandemic situation, we will focus on solutions that protect people in the laboratories and allow continuous operation with a minimal number of operators.

There is no fee for this event – register today and attend one or both days.
