On Tuesday October 18th the workshop “Portable X-ray fluorescence: How to collect robust and reliable pXRF data and maximise its value” will be held at the FCFM’s facilities, offered by CSIRO senior researcher Dr. Michael Gazley.
Portable X-ray fluorescence (pXRF) technology can be used to collect large amounts of multi-element data rapidly at relatively low cost and has been widely embraced within the minerals industry. However, to date, it has been difficult to compare data-sets collected by different users on different times because there is no standardised approach to the collection of those data. The workshop will show how to collect reliable pXRF data, some of the pitfalls to avoid and how to assess that the collected data is robust and fit-for-purpose.
The workshop will be held at the Eduardo Simián Auditorium of the FCFM’s Mine Engineering Department, 2069 Tupper Avenue, Santiago. Attending has a cost of US$ 250. For further information, please contact Dr. Víctor Montenegro at email@example.com.
