IMA Systems, technology & applications

IMA offers mining and exploration services and consulting
(with technology partners) covering:

IMA works in co-operation with mining companies, mining technology and service providers to introduce the latest techonology and new applications for the mines.

Analytical technology

XRF (X-ray fluorescence) is mainly used to identify elemental/mineral composition (energy or wavelength dispersive of the X-rays) and concentrations of the elements (intensity of X-rays).


Well proven method used extensively in laboratories.

Laser induced fluorescence (LIF): Sample is excited with a laser. After some time excited species emit fluorescent light.

Laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS): Laser pulse dissociate sample into excited atoms and ions which then emit light at characteristic wavelengths.
