Mineral Assay Laboratory

The mineral assay laboratory is for larger mining developments, allowing the exploration to be managed from start to finish from one convenient, containerised mobile office laboratory provided by APT.

These fully comprehensive laboratories can be relocated with ease, allowing for optimal exploration, evaluation of your mineral resource and monitoring of your mining operation. APT supply 3 different analysis options, all of which include: Air conditioned container complete with sink benches and analytical equipment. Crushing, pulverising and other sample preparation requirements. Compressed air, water and electrical reticulation. Sample analytical equipment specific to the module type.

Flexibility to react quickly is now hugely important in the new mining industry. Good decisions are made not only upon good information, but in time with changing events. Containerised, convenient, fast analyses make a great partner to nimble slick operations.


Containerised, convenient, fast analyses. Information can begin to flow almost immediately after installation. Should an area not prove up, the system is easily translocatable.

This makes the units ideal for ongoing monitoring and efficiency maintenance of APT plants or existing plants.

This allows you full control of your mining development and maximise on-site value.

APT Field Laboratories are not just equipped for analysis, but also include relevant metallurgical testing capability.

"The APT process engineers demonstrated high standards of competence to come with a laboratory specifically designed to deal with the major issues of high nugget effect and preg-robbing affinity characteristics of the resource. The obtained results are of high level accuracy and unmatched reproducibility. I have no hesitation of recommending APT field laboratory services for a wide range of metallurgical testing, whether it is exploration programs, detailed feasibility studies, ore body modelling or quality control on existing process plants" - Chrispin Machipisa | Laboratory Manager, CATA Mining
