FEI and JKTech Team to Increase Mining Efficiencies (4/3/07)

April 3, 2007
FEI Co. and Australia-based JKTech have teamed to deliver applications that enhance minerals processing and improve evaluation of exploration targets for mining operations.

FEI Co. and Australia-based JKTech have teamed to combine their scanning electron microscope (SEM) technologies and software to deliver applications that enhance minerals processing and improve evaluation of exploration targets for mining operations. The combined solution features FEI’s Quanta™ SEM and JKTech’s Mineral Liberation Analyzer (MLA) software, and is available now with liquid-nitrogen-free, high-throughput silicon drift EDS technology.

“There are hundreds of mining operations around the world, and all of them are continually looking for means of increasing yields and lowering costs,” said Geoff Gault, Ph.D., JKTech’s managing director. “Because the Mineral Liberation Analyzer not only delivers critical data for making mineral processing more efficient, but also provides a highly effective tool for evaluating exploration targets, this solution represents a compelling value proposition for customers.”
