High Precision Assaying
Bureau Veritas has one of the world’s largest independent global laboratory networks for commercial settlements and disputes involving metals and minerals.
When it comes to settling commercial disputes, all parties need assurance that any analytical results they have been given are 100% accurate, and that the testing methods used were transparent.
In these cases Bureau Veritas can be relied upon to help resolve any discrepancies. By utilising the very latest sampling techniques and high precision assay methods contractual parties can rest assured that the test results are precise, accurate and a fair representation of the received sample.
Our expertise includes the use of classical assay methods, such as gravimetric (wet chemistry) and fire assay as well as instrumental techniques, including Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometry (ICP-OES), Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS) and X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF).
ISO 17025 accredited testing is externally audited to ensure the highest standards of measurement are constantly achieved.
