Automated mineralogy solutions like the TIMA-X are both relevant and highly beneficial in geological interpretation and mining operations. The implementation of automated mineralogy gives prior knowledge of feed and helps maintain quality of ore sent to processing facilities.
Some examples of how automated mineralogy can be used in mineral mapping include:
Automated Mineralogy Compared to Other Techniques
Traditionally, numerous techniques have been used by geologists to determine the geological makeup of minesites. Provided below is a comparison of the varius techniques that van be used to quantify the mineralogy of minesites.
