Control grade in mining

The IMA Autosampler automates the sampling, sample splitting, and sample bag change process. The system preserves the geological structure in the sample bag for detailed ore, waste border recognition, and visual chips logging.


It reduces manual labor versus traditional sampling, thus liberating geologists and drill helpers for more productive and safer work.
The splitter system produces highly representative and right-sized samples for easy handling and further processing.
The longitudinal SoftCore™ samples can be geologically logged visually for detailed ore and waste border positioning.
