SASKATCHEWAN – The Saskatchewan Research Council, located in Saskatoon, has added the QEMScan® service to provide precise quantitative mineralogical analyses. The SRC is the first QEMScan service provider in Saskatchewan and one of only a handful in Canada.

SRC wants its potential customers to know that it has invested $1.4 million to provide the new service. QEMScan is a sophisticated electron microscope capable of advanced electron spectroscopy that enables scientists to determine the bulk mineralogy and liberation characteristics of various types of ore samples. The service is available now.

The QEMScan service, commonly the first phase of any mineral processing program, will complement the current testing services of SRC’s Advanced Microanalysis Centre™ and mineral processing pilot plant.

“SRC has a long track record of providing real world solutions to the mining industry,” said president and CEO Dr. Laurier Schramm. “This new service, in addition to SRC’s current capabilities in this sector, will enhance SRC’s ability to serve mining industry clients as a ‘one-stop-shop’ to meet their analytical testing needs here in Saskatchewan.”
