Dirk Treasure is a metallurgist with technical and corporate experience. He has designed, built and managed technology development projects at various scales across a range of hydrometallurgical, pyrometallurgical and electrolytic disciples.

As CEO, Dirk has worked with Chrysos since its inception and has led the company as its CEO since it started operations in January 2017.

A Quick Assay for Gold?

Chrysos Corporation is commercialising the PhotonAssay technology, originally developed by the CSIRO. Based on the principles of photon activation analysis, the method uses a high-energy X-ray source to excite nuclear changes in any gold atoms present in a sample, and then measures a characteristic signature emitted by these atoms.

The process is non-destructive, rapid, highly specific and capable of providing a true-bulk analysis of samples, weighing 0.5kg or more.
