The platinum-group elements (PGE) include platinum, palladium, rhodium, ruthenium, iridium,
and osmium. These metals have similar physical and chemical properties and occur together in nature. The properties of PGE, such as high melting points, corrosion resistance, and catalytic qualities, make them indispensable to many industrial applications.
Pre-Columbian peoples found naturally occurring platinum and platinum-rich alloys in stream
deposits in Colombia and Ecuador and used them to make jewelry. In the 1500s, Europeans described platinum from the New World as “a... Read More

NEVADA ZINC REPORTS EXCELLENT RESULTS FROM INITIAL METALLURGICAL TEST WORK
Nevada Zinc Corp. has released positive initial results from mineralogical and sample-processing studies completed on representative non-sulphide-mineralized material from its Lone Mountain zinc project near Eureka, Nev.... Read More
Dense medium separation (DMS) is a newer processing technology which grew in popularity during the 1950-1970’s as many companies used it to replace inefficient jigging processes for separating coal, iron and other ores. From the conversations I have had with current and potential customers about DMS technology it is obvious that though it is a well proven method for preconcentration and concentration duties, many people are not aware of how it works or the strong benefit they stand to gain from this simple, but effective, process.

Development of the MAT
Because of its unique nature within the scope of Met-Solve Laboratories Inc., we have featured today the development of the Met-Solve Analytical Table (MAT). The primary business of Met-Solve is in metallurgical testing and consulting – so why would a lab sell a single piece of equipment?
Its conception was a result of a need within our lab for a better analytical table than the similar unit previously used... Read More
