Atlantic Minerals Limited’s stringent sampling and analysis measures ensure consistently high-quality materials for customers all over the world.
Atlantic Minerals Limited follows a strict testing process, analyzing products from the exploration phase right on through to ship loading.
Areas to be developed are identified using exploration drilling. Samples at varying depths, usually 1.5 metre intervals, are taken and analyzed for chemical composition. Once the exploration data has been evaluated, and new areas for development established, further sampling and analysis occurs by conducting a Test Hole sampling program. Test Holes results provide detailed chemical information on proposed blast areas.
After blasting, the material is processed via crushing and screening into various size products. Each product size produced is sampled and analyzed to ensure required customer specifications are being met. To further ensure that products meet customer specifications, another round of analysis occurs during ship loading.
