X-MINE project delivers initial results

The scientific journal Economic Geology, managed by the Society of Economic Geologists, has published results of a unique pilot study that integrates automated drill core scanning technology based on simultaneous X-ray computed tomography and X-ray fluorescence analyses to provide high-spatial-resolution information on 3D rock textures and structures. This study is part of the X-MINE project that explores the possibilities of better resource characterisation and estimation as well as more efficient ore extraction in existing mining operations. Both ADVACAM s.r.o. and ADVACAM Oy participated in this project by providing their unique technology to develop and manufacture semiconductor sensors used for advanced spectroscopic X-ray fluorescence and X-ray transmission cameras.
