As recently reported by Australia’s Mining Monthly, Chrysos’ PhotonAssay technology operating at MinAnalytical Laboratory Services’ Perth facility has recently received NATA accreditation. The certification, issued by the National Association of Testing Authorities, Australia, indicates that the system and associated procedures are compliant with ISO/IEC 17025 and are suitable for measuring gold in mineral ores.

The accreditation assessment was based on extensive testing and validation of the PhotonAssay technology undertaken by Chrysos and MinAnalytical staff. More than 10,000 measurements were performed to compare PhotonAssay with traditional fire-assay, and to validate the sensitivity and accuracy of the new system.
