Analysis of copper in ore

AppNote XRF1457: analysis of copper in ore for exploration and ore grade control

Background

Elemental analysis is crucial for screening samples at the mine site as well as throughout the processing of ores. During smelting, major and minor elements are also closely monitored in the ore, concentrates, slags and tails. Rigaku offers the NEX QC Series of analyzers to meet these analytical needs of the mining industry, both at the mine site and the smelter. Simple yet versatile, the NEX QC is transportable for mine site screening, rugged enough for the smelting operations, and powerful enough for work in a central lab. The NEX QC utilizes 50 kV direct excitation and a high performance semiconductor detector to provide excellent sensitivity in a low cost tool ideal for the analysis of ore materials.
