New contract secured for innovative drill core scanner
Australia’s national science agency, CSIRO, has acquired an advanced analytical instrument for their Geoscience Drill Core Laboratory under a new agreement with Swedish analytical instrument developer, Minalyze AB. Produced in Sweden, the Minalyzer CS instrument is the only instrument that provides full digitalisation of drill cores and other drill samples. The Minalyze instrument´s continuous XRF capability provides geochemistry for any interval and high-resolution images. The data generated also enables specific gravity estimates, semi-automatic generated RQD and digital structural logging. Minalyze has also recently released the world´s first web based cloud solution, minalogger.com for viewing of cores in 3D.
Annelie Lundström CEO Minalyze AB says: “We’re pleased to grow our agreement with CSIRO. This is a strategic collaboration for Minalyze and enables us to expand into new business models. In addition to our service model we are now selling the instruments to the research and academia market segment.”
CSIRO has one of the largest mineral resources research groups in the world. The research organisation acquired the Minalyzer through a tender process, adding it to a growing suite of analytical facilities in its new drill core laboratory in Perth, Western Australia.
