SCOPE OF APPLICATION:
The Fugro X-ray fluorescence cone records metals in sediment at high resolution and in real time. It rapidly characterises mine tailings and screens contaminants and secondary resources, such as the heavy metal distribution of soils or sediments. The probe’s cone penetration test unit simultaneously records geotechnical data through cone resistance and sleeve friction and provides information about the soil type, stratification, strength and consistency.
FIELDS OF APPLICATION
- Characterizes of tailings fast and high resolution for feasibility studies and profitability assessments of mining tailing residues.
- Identifies metal bearing zones in mine waste residues or tailings for secondary mining.
- Investigates and delineates metals in landfills and mine tailings for environmental impact assessments and remediation planning.
- Supports soil remediation through the rapid identification of hot spots and areas of concern.
