Mineral Concentrating Laboratory

Sample processing requirements differ between clients, projects and even between samples. ODM routinely adapts sample processing requirements to optimize mineral recovery.


Our high-capacity mineral concentration laboratory uses customized gravity (shaking tables, micro-panning, heavy liquids) and electromagnetic concentration devices to recover heavy mineral grains of all sizes — from silt sized gold grains to coarse-grained kimberlite and base metal indicators — from every sample. The refined concentrates that ODM produces are ideal for both indicator mineral logging and geochemical analysis.


ODM's comprehensive sample processing has changed the commodity focus of numerous gold, kimberlite and base metal surveys including Voisey's Bay.​
