This week, we continue our series of posts on the topic of Blast Hole Sampling and Analysis in Ore Grade Control in Mining and today we are talking about IMA Engineering’s Methods, Equipment and Results for Blast Hole Sampling. This article and the attached white paper are the continuation of our previous article that you can read here.
Blast hole sampling and analysis in Ore Grade Control in Mining is a topic that we feel, hasn’t been covered enough. During the month of March 2021, we aim to bring some clarity on this topic and to present some solutions to the current challenges faced by mining companies all over the world.
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.
We are happy to share with you this episode of the Mining Technology Parnters Podcast where Ilpo Auranen, Chairman of IMA Engineering and CEO of Mine On-Line Service was invited to talk to Cynthia Collins.
