Sampling and Analysis – International Mining Magazine


IMA Engineering is one of the first companies to integrate X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) technology into the drill core analysis process. Together with our partners from Mine On-Line Service we developed and produced the Nordic region’s first mobile core scanner prototype more than seven years ago. Ilpo Auranen, Chairman of IMA Engineering, has been recently interviewed by the International Mining Magazine on the topic of drill core analysis.
