CubiX³ Minerals - Mineral Quantification for Mining

X-ray diffraction (XRD) is the main tool for rapid mineral quantification of rocks, ores and mining process-related products. Delivering rapid return on investment, high-speed XRD can be used to discover and develop mineral deposits more profitably.

Analysis of the minerals present in an ore body optimizes mining and process operations such as flotation and separation, etc. By understanding and mapping precise mineral compositions, it becomes possible to effectively mine increasingly low grade deposits.

CubiX³ Minerals is the ideal investment for exploration and control of mineral grading, processing and quality. By removing the need for intensive wet-chemical analyses, delivering better grade differentiation and decreasing the costs of ore beneficiation and processing, the initial investment in equipment is easily earned back.
