Metals and Minerals Testing

Testing is required for metals and minerals to ensure that properties meet the requirements for use or purpose. Metal and minerals used in industry are expected to perform to specific standards and for a predetermined lifespan.

Materials analysis, metallurgy, failure analysis, physical and mechanical testing are all essential testing requirements, depending on the type of product.

Minerals and metals testing: from mining to delivery

We offer a wide range of services around the globe and all across the supply chain. We can do initial testing at the mining site, perform pre-shipment quality control, can inspect the vessel at both ends of its journey and analyse samples in our network of state-of-the-art laboratories. 

Why testing for minerals and metals

Testing of minerals and metals is required to verify grade or quality levels of the materials. Testing may also be required to determine if the product conforms to specific standards, rules or regulations for market entry or to meet contractual requirements for trade.

How does it work?

The process

Generally, samples are taken by our experienced inspectors following internationally recognised ISO sampling methods.
