ZEISS Mineralogic

Data-driven decision-making in action



Characterize your minerals to achieve maximum recovery of resources. With Mineralogic Mining you can use automated mineral analysis to identify and quantify minerals in real-time. 

Mineralogic Mining is your geological investigation tool, answering a wide range of questions of your sample. From dedicated high throughput mineral liberation workflows to in-depth fundamental geoscientific investigations, the combination of image processing, standards-based quantitative EDS, image analysis and reporting toolkits can be configured to interrogate even the most challenging samples. 

The newest version of ZEISS Mineralogic, just released, offers:

Fully quantitative EDX with standards-based elemental chemistry measured at each point 
Minerals are identified based on chemistry rather than EDX spectrum. Mineralogic offers you more precise mineral classification and elemental assay reconciliation.

Textural classification included in mineral classification
A true petrological analyzer. Accounting for textural variation allows more accurate and precise ore characterization. Identify and separate minerals based on texture, important for ore characterization.

Mineral libraries that are transferrable between instruments
Use a single master mineral library: every site can use identical mineral classification libraries so a level of systematic error is removed from the analyses. The ability to share libraries with ease also means that QA analyses may be performed by third parties with absolute confidence. Mine sites do not need to have experts on site and can send their data via email to be analyzed if there is a problem. This capability also removes a level of expertise required to be in remote locations.

> Upgrade your automated mineralogy system to the latest capabilities, backed by ZEISS commitment and support. Act before March 31 and receive a discount on the newest and most advanced capabilities for onsite mineralogy. 

Mineralogic Mining combines a scanning electron microscope with one or more EDS detectors, a mineral analysis engine and the Mining software plug-in. 

Simply choose the ZEISS SEM platform that best suits your applications from conventional or field emission systems.
