FOR ALL YOUR CHEMICAL AND MINERALOGICAL ANALYSIS
The geochemical laboratory provides consultancy and analytical services to mineral exploration companies and individuals, mining companies, water utilitycompanies, farmers, research institutions and government. Soil samples are analyzed for their mineralogical composition, essential elements and pH as requested by clients. Rock samples are also analysed for their mineralogical composition. Plant tissues are analyzed for essential elements; while water samples are analyzed for pH, TDS, conductivity, heavy metal contamination and anions.
The laboratory has the following key analytical instruments:
The state of the Art Varian Techtron SpectrAA 220 Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer
The Varian Techtron SpectrAA 50 Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer
The UV-VIS Spectrophotometer
TDS & Conductivity meters
The X-Ray Diffractometer
Used for Mineral Identification, Phase determinations in solid solutions and crystal structure analysis
The Atomic Absorption Spectrometers
Used for analysis of Au, Cu, Co, Cr, Mn, Zn, Pb, Sn, Ni, Mo, Fe, Cd, Ag, K, Na, Mg, Ca, Al, As, Se, Ti, Nb, Ta, Li, Hg, Pt and many others.
The UV-Vis Spectrophotometer
Used for Analysis of Phosphates, Sulfates and Nitrates in domestic, industrial and waste waters
Heavy metals in water are analysed using the Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometers. Anions are analysed using the UV-Vis Spectrophotometer.
The Laboratory is currently implementing the ISO/ IEC 17025 International Standard requirements which incorporates ISO 9001 and ISO 9002 requirements for Testing and Calibrating Laboratories
