The Advanced Mineralogical and Metallurgical Characterization group counts with the infrastructure of the Pyrometallurgy Laboratory from University of Chile’s Mining Engineering Department. Also, it has locations the Advanced Mining Technology Center , where different equipment are available for characterization tests.
The infrastructure and available equipment can be used for:
- Sample pulverizing
- Sample drying
- Reological tests
- High temperature process tests
- Briquettes preparation and reflection microscopy studies
- Pilot tests
- Advanced mineral characterisation
- Other types of analyses and sample preparation procedures.
Available advanced characterization equipment give the possibility to develop geometallurgical models based on the results interpretation of the mineralogical quantification.
