For exploration and mining, Labtium is the only laboratory in the Nordic Countries that provides locally comprehensive sample preparation and analytical services
Labtium is committed to deliver efficient and realiable analytical services using the most suitable methods throughout the whole lifetime of the mine.
We offer a wide range of analytical and expert services to support the mining and mineral exploration companies ranging from the exploration and development stages to mine production coupled with environmental monitoring.
Labtium is one of the first geoanalytical laboratories worldwide to be granted accreditation as early as in 1994. Today, Labtium is accredited according to ISO/IEC 17025 by FINAS (Finnish accreditation service. Testing laboratory T025) and most of our routine methods have accreditation status.
For mineral exploration our portfolio of methods is comprehensive, including almost all best practice analytical methods. Our diverse sample preparation equipment enables us to greatly customise our services in accordance with the customer’s needs, the strategic project phase and the characteristics of the ore.
We routinely participate in the selection of methods as early as in the planning phase of the exploration project. The whole analyses process, from sampling onwards, must be planned meticulously and with care.
For the evaluation of mineral resources, we have a comprehensive selection of sample preparation and analytical methods in line with internationally approved best practices and reporting requirements e.g. Canadian NI 43-101 and Australian JORC codes.
Labtium can provide a wide range of services for mining and metallurgy. In addition to the preparation and analyses of exploration and grade control samples, we analyse process samples from different stages of the mineral processing including independent party and umpire analysis.
To complement our client’s needs of laboratory services for mining, Labtium offers a comprehensive and full service for environmental monitoring of mines. These services include analysis of process, surface and ground water samples, sediments, soils, plants, impact filters etc. Additionally our scope of leaching test for side products and tailings is comprehensive.
Moreover, we can design and implement laboratory services for mines with the mining company serving as the operator or outsourcing all of the services from us, either on-site or through our comprehensive laboratory network.
