Take a Closer Look at ASD's Mineral Analyzers at MINExpo 2012

September 03, 2012
In less than a month, the mining world will converge to discuss industry trends, influential companies and the latest technological advancements. Resent production pressures created a demand on mining operators that will require advanced technological solutions to increase their company’s mining yields and profitability.

ASD will display our leading mineral analyzers at MINExpo, Sept. 24-26 in Las Vegas, at booth 22206 in the South Hall. We will demonstrate how our analyzers are well suited for exploration and mining production applications.  

Our durable TerraSpec® 4 mineral analyzers for mining exploration and production have been trusted by mining professionals for years. These analyzers have proven top-rated accuracy, and boast a convenient, portable design.

Visit our booth to learn:

•    How TerraSpec 4 analyzers pair with the powerful TSG Pro™ software for rapid and precise mineralogical analysis

•    How real-time quantitative information derived by our instrumentation solutions help optimize mining production through immediate decisions that improve productivity, reduce costs and increase yields

•    How the  QualitySpec® 7000 over-the-belt analyzer provides instant, non-destructive multiple constituent analysis of swelling clays or problem mineral percentages.
