EIT RawMaterials supported start-up IMA Engineering is proud to launch its Drill Cuttings Sampler-Analyser

Aalto EIT Services

IMA Engineering is proud to launch its Drill Cuttings Sampler-Analyser called PDSA. PDSA can analyze drill benches with the speed of production drilling with trailer mounted system or integrated on the drill rig. PDSA data can be used to make accurate 3D model of the blast bench. As a result dilution is reduced, ore grade can be better manipulated in loading, ore loss is measured and reduced, clean inert waste and sulfide bearing toxic waste rock will be directed to the right location.

With the new version of the PDSA Sampler-Analyser you can analyse the entire production bench before charging with explosives.

With this analysis you can get accurate blasting and loading maps with benefits:

  • less waste rock dilution and higher head grade
  • better separation of acidic and clean waste rock in mine waste area

With the new method you get representative samples and accurate analysis of the bench. The technology proof of the new method of IMA Engineering was financed by EIT RawMaterials as a part of the Start-up and SME Booster funding.
