Dirk Treasure, CEO of Chrysos Corporation joins us to explain the company’s PhotonAssay technology. Developed by Australia’s national science agency CSIRO and brought to market by Chrysos, photon gold analyses is a faster, safer and more environmentally-friendly alternative to the conventional fire assay technique for gold analysis.
Fully automated, PhotonAssay dramatically reduces the turnaround time on assays from days to minutes, providing critical data to miners on gold grades in near real-time to support operational decisions. The PhotonAssay can be taken to remote sites or the laboratory and is seen as a technology with a competitive return on investment that will increase gold recovery for mines all over the world.
Dirk explains how this powerful system detects gold in low PPB, requires little or no sample preparation and has a high, automated sampling rate without the disadvantages of other techniques.
