Join the Kalgoorlie Branch to hear from guest speaker Tim Sennett on the topic of “PhotonAssay, a new way to measure gold and related elements, with a focus on the challenges of coarse gold.”
PhotonAssay is a revolutionary new technology based on ground-breaking scientific research at the CSIRO and now commercialised by Chrysos.
The science behind the technology will be reviewed together with the inherent characteristics of the technique which provide several powerful benefits when compared to traditional Fire Assay, particularly when dealing with coarse gold deposits.
PhotonAssay service ex Kalgoorlie will be summarised.
