Posted on

The X-MINE project just recently got its 15-th partner when sorting company Comex joined the H2020 project.

Comex is specializing in the development and manufacturing of sorters for the mining industry and will take on the responsibility to implement new X-RAY technology based analysers in a sorting machine.

The X-MINE project is a unique cooperation between partners active in mineral exploration, mineral production, geological mapping and experts in development of highly advanced analytical instruments and process solutions. Focus is on:

  • Penetrative XRF-scanning and 3D-tomographic imaging and assaying of exploration drill core
  • Utilization of tomographic imagery and structural information in local-, to regional, 3D geological modelling
  • Implementation of penetrative XRF-tomography and assaying in sorting of ore from waste rock.
