Petrolab offers a materials preparation service producing petrographic thin sections from samples and specimens of
- fossil / coral
- concrete and other similar materials
We operate the first Pelcon Automatic Thin Section Machine in the UK, which produces high quality thin sections.
Petrolab has provided a wide range of services to industry leading clients including:
The benefits of multicomponent mineralogical analysis – an example from the Isortoq Fe-V-Ti deposit.
We recently had the opportunity to work on R500’s high-grade Fe-V-Ti Isortoq project in South-West Greenland, using multiple analytical techniques to discern the overall bulk and trace mineralogy along with key liberation and deportment characteristics. This type of multicomponent analysis can be highly beneficial for providing robust overall mineralogical interpretation allowing greater confidence for critical ongoing commercial and development decisions.read more
