Application Note: Copper Concentrate Analysis by Pressed Powder Method
12 October 2012

This application note describes the conventional calibration method of copper ore concentrate analysis and also standardless analysis using the fundamental parameter method. X-ray fluorescence spectrometry is the best method for the analytical requirements of routine analysis to monitor ore grade with high precision, accuracy and rapidity. The Supermini200 from Rigaku provides calibration accuracy with repeatability results that are precise enough to use for daily analysis.
