As the mining and exploration industry undergoes digital transformation for improved value creation, there are increasing demands for faster analytical data that underpin operational decision-making. To meet this challenge, SGS is introducing a suite of FAST service packages to complement its existing lab-based analytical services business. Based on robust field portable technologies, FAST provides rapid chemical and/or mineralogical data that can be fed to modeling software or machine learning routines for improved exploration targeting or ore characterization.

Delivery of FAST on-site ensures availability of data when your operation needs it, maximizing your investment. Consistent and systematic information is available to assist with decision making, such as the conclusion or continuation of drilling for each hole, or for assessing active drill programs based on the latest drilling results. FAST allows decisions to be made now.

FAST package options that include continuous downhole EDXRF core scanning (for DDH or RC) using the Minalyzer CS technology, enable visualisation of analysed samples via a Cloud-based portal (Minalogger). This ensures enabling global team visibility, collaboration and oversite for field-based activities. Site-based scanning enables Senior Geological Teams to effectively manage multiple drill programs simultaneously, no matter how remote they are to HQ, or to each other.

FAST provides field-based data that is:

  • Consistent
  • Quality-controlled
  • Timely
  • Accessible
  • Visible

By using FAST, you gain:

  • Optimized exploration and production
  • Real-time decision making based on quality data gained in the field
  • Improved speed-to-market

Event location: Room B708 McDonald Street Conference Centre, Kalgoorlie, Western Australia
