ZEISS Mineralogic-Mining: a new automated mineralogy system on the market

This week, ZEISS released the latest automated mineralogy system to hit the market; Mineralogic-Mining.  Mineralogic-Mining combines a scanning electron microscope with one or more EDS detectors, a mineral analysis engine and the Mining software plug-in, and is available on a range of ZEISS SEM platforms including tungsten and FEG options.  ZEISS have a long-running history in the automated mineralogy field, with many instruments around the world based on ZEISS platforms, and this latest release represents one of several new products coming to the market from their expanding natural resources group.

Developed in conjunction with industry domain experts, Mineralogic-Mining takes a fresh approach to measurement, mineral identification and data reporting using the latest developments in hardware and software technology.  Mineralogic Mining aims to provide a geological querying tool that can be moulded to ask any question from any geological sample in the way that any user may consider best. At the same time, user involvement with the data processing may be minimised by the availability of automated industry specific outputs.

 

Measurement recipes are highly flexible utilising any combination of BSE, EDX or morphology- based parameters on samples (or easily defined areas of samples) of any size and shape that can fit in the SEM chamber.

 

Mineral identification is based on quantified spectra, so is easy to set-up, simple to interpret and has the benefit of providing measured assay and elemental distribution data as standard.

Data interpretation and reporting is based around Mineralogic Mining’s range of application-specific elements.

 

Further information is available on the ZEISS product web page at: www.zeiss.com/mineralogic

 

I would also like to announce that I have just joined the ZEISS Natural Resources team as Product Manager responsible for the  Process Specific Tools (including Mineralogic).  I will of course remain involved with Process Mineralogy Today!
