The Laboratory of Analytical Control (LAC) is accredited for technical competence by the Association of Analytical Centers “Analytika” (international accreditation).
The scope of accreditation includes rocks and ores of various compositions and genesis, products of their processing and enrichment, platinum metal concentrates, industrial products with a high content of precious metals, metal samples, their oxides and salts.
The availability of modern equipment and highly qualified personnel makes it possible to conduct research into the chemical composition of various products in a wide concentration range – from 0.001 g/t to 100%.
Analytical laboratory servicesTO PERFORM QUANTITATIVE CHEMICAL ANALYSIS, ANALYTICAL LABORATORY USES THE MOST MODERN EQUIPMENT
To determine precious metals in rocks, ores, catalysts, tar, coal, in the products of technological processing analytical laboratory using assay collection in the lead-silver bead, nickel or copper-nickel matte.
Analytical laboratory actively participates in interlaboratory comparative tests, certification of standard samples, performs external geological control, develops methods of quantitative chemical analysis. It cooperates with such organizations as MMC Norilsk Nickel, Geoprominvest, RAC MIA, Gipronickel Institute, VIMS, VNIIM named after D.I. Mendeleev, Minstandard Scientific and Technical Center, Irgiredmet, Regis, NMP and others.
Analytical laboratory staff conduct internships and master classes in various areas and according to programs developed together with the customer, develop and optimize analysis techniques, participate in the preparation and conduct of seminars, webinars and conferences.
The analytical laboratory provides methodological assistance and analytical services to outsource organizations to perform quantitative chemical analysis of more than 60 components in various products on a fee basis.

Analytical laboratory servicesANALYTICAL EQUIPMENT AND INSTRUMENTS
Agilent 7700x Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometer
Used for geochemical analysis of rocks, ores and products of their processing (determination of more than 60 elements, including precious and rare earth metals), determination of impurities in pure substances (refined metals: gold, platinum, palladium) and other tasks.
Agilent 5110 SVDV Inductively Coupled Plasma Atomic Emission Spectrometer
Automatic analysis of any type of sample in the concentration range from 10-6% to 100%. Preliminary preparation (acid dissolution, fusion, sintering following the procedure).
To solve non-trivial analytical problems (solutions containing hydrofluoric acid, highly and slightly volatile solvents and samples with a high salt content) several special sample injection systems are provided.
