ANARPAM laboratory provides you with a modern mechanical preparation workshop (several chains made up of hardened steel jaw crushers, tungsten or agate carbide disc pulverizers, sieve shakers, etc.) loads soil or rock samples to:

  • Crushing less than 1.75mm.
  • Spray ranging from 80 to 53 microns.
  • Particle size control by sieving every ten samples.
  • Sample segregation to avoid any contamination.

Services provided include:

Service Price (MRU) / Sample

2- CHEMICAL AND MINERAL ANALYSIS

This service relies on high tech equipment for the analysis of a wide range of metals for different mining and industrial use and applications. The reliability of our results is guaranteed by our accreditation and participatory testing, together with inter-laboratory aptitude (Geostats LTD), in which we participate every year. Our laboratory is classified among laboratories with satisfactory Z-Scores.

3 - MINERALOGY DEPARTMENT

The mission to this Department is to conduct mineralogical services (preparation of samples and / or studies) to satisfy our customer orders.

This section is equipped with saws and microscopes of different types (Camera, transmitted light, reflected light, binocular), to perform all the services of :

  • Making thin and polished blades
  • Making polished sections
  • Petrographic study
  • Metallographic study
  • Study of grain minerals
