Cost-effective, highly accurate and safe technology delivers financial savings, performance gains and safety benefits over conventional assay methods.
Chrysos Corporation aims to provide the highest quality, real-time analytical and information services to the global mining industry
Based in Adelaide, Chrysos is a South Australian company delivering novel assay technology within Australia and internationally. With our partners, we aim to support mining and mineral processing operations around the world.
Our unique, patented Chrysos PhotonAssay® technology, developed over the past fifteen years by the CSIRO, provides rapid, accurate and fully automated analysis of ore grade in your materials.
Our aim is simple: to provide real-time, accurate grade information without laborious, time-consuming and error-prone sample preparation or complex chemical treatment. Timely information supports rapid decision making, improving efficiency, recovery and profitability.
With unique sensitivity for gold, Chrysos PhotonAssay® is suitable for use across the value chain, including exploration, resource definition, mine planning and process monitoring. With sample sizes at least 10-20 times those used for fire-assay, analysis of heterogeneous ores is greatly simplified. A gold analysis service will be launched in 2017.
Silver can be measured and reported simultaneously with gold using a single sample if required. With silver measureable from low g/tonne to percent levels, Chrysos PhotonAssay® can replace conventional silver assay techniques in most applications. A silver analysis service is scheduled for late 2017.
Chrysos PhotonAssay® provides chemistry-free copper analysis, reporting total metal grade independent of the physical or mineralogical form in which the copper is present. A copper analysis service is scheduled for late 2017.
