Blending Services Minerals
Bureau Veritas has a highly experienced global network of inspectors with key local knowledge
Bureau Veritas assists companies in blending concentrates from different lots to arrive at a pre-determined mix concentration. This is quite commonly the case with copper, zinc and lead concentrates and generally it allows the level of harmful elements such as arsenic to be kept within the limits permitted under local regulations.
The blending ratio is determined by the customer and is based on the results of previously analysed samples. As verification, the final mix may be sampled and tested.
Bureau Veritas inspectors have particular expertise in blending technology and can apply Theory of Sampling (TOS) techniques to provide an homogenous sample, vital to achieve accurate and representative results.
