We work directly with major mining and mineral processing operations in the U.S., Brazil, China and beyond to reduce the environmental footprint of the mining process. Our experts contribute to a safe and clean surface and underground mining environment by providing prevention and control techniques such as:
OSHA, MSHA and EPA-mandated analytical methods for clients who routinely conduct compliance monitoring for asbestos, crystalline silica, metals and vapors.
Routine monitoring and analysis of air samples for ambient, combustible and flammable gases.
Analysis of surface and groundwater samples to determine baseline water chemistry so changes such as contamination can be easily recognized.
Identification of underground environmental problems such as dusts, temperature, and humidity.
Assessment of natural and mechanical ventilation systems.
Characterization of mine waste.

Summary: In the identification and characterization of minerals, our analysts use the best-suited techniques including, X-Ray Diffraction(XRD) to establish crystallographic patterns, X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) to determine concentrations of selected elements; wet chemistry techniques for gravimetric and volumetric concentration, electron microscopy (SEM, TEM) and optical microscopy (PCM, PLM) The variety of minerals to analyze, constituents to be determined, matrix compositions encountered all present challenges. RJ Lee Group accepts those challenges.
