SGS has entered into an agreement with Corescan Pty Ltd that will allow Corescan’s mineralogical imaging technology to be incorporated into SGS’ global network servicing the minerals exploration and oil and gas industries.
The agreement allows for the integration of Corescan’s hyperspectral mineralogical mapping capability with SGS’ comprehensive range of logistics, sample management, analytical and professional services. Coupled with SGS’ existing mineralogical and geological expertise, this latest capability will deliver greater understanding in applications from exploration through to geometallurgical assessment.
Corescan’s technology complements SGS’ industry-leading minerals business by providing high resolution sample and core photography (60μm); identification and mapping of alteration minerals and their chemical compositions (4nm); physical textures and morphology using 3D laser profiling (20μm); integrated data management and visualisation; and access to a full range of analytical services from a single provider, via centralised, or on- or near-site facilities.
The new service will be available through SGS’ network of commercial and on-site facilities across the world. The relationship with Corescan demonstrates SGS’ ongoing commitment to providing leading edge integrated exploration services.
