Ores Mining Analysis Workshop: Latest developments in analytical techniques including X-ray and particle size distribution

Malvern Panalytical is proud to jointly organize a tailored 2-day programme with India’s prestigious R and D organisation, the CSIR-Institute of Minerals and Materials Technology (IMMT). This programme serves to gather all professionals from the mining, metals and minerals field. Malvern Panalytical’s application specialists will be flying in from our supply center in the Netherlands as well as from the region to present at this workshop. Alongside esteemed guest speakers from CSIR - IMMT, academic institutions and industry, they will share how to achieve better ROI, quality control and efficiency by improving the way they analyse samples like iron, bauxite and coal, using X-ray, laser diffraction and other techniques.

During this workshop, you will learn more about:
1. The holistic range (including latest advancements in the market) of analytical solutions that you can engage at each stage of the mining process: from exploration, grade control, processing, manufacturing, research, supply and more
2. Learn how to achieve good data and how to interpret the data
3. Get tips on applying the data to solve your problems and improve your supply chain
4. Stay up to date with what other companies in Europe and the Americas are engaging to improve their ROI

His specialty is in the development of new analytical solutions for exploration, process monitoring and optimization in the mining and metals industries. These include mobile, laboratory-based and online monitoring solutions.

Dr König studied geology and applied mineralogy at Martin-Luther-University Halle (Germany) and the UFPA (Universidade Federal do Para) Belem (Brazil). In 2006, he reached his PhD in the field of applied mineralogy.

About Dr Olga Narygina
Dr Olga studied physics at the Ural State University (Russia). After completing her master thesis on high-pressure, high-temperature studies of carbon nanotubes Dr Narygina moved to Bayerisches Geoinstitut (University of Bayreuth, Germany) to obtain her PhD degree. Her work there focused on high-pressure, high-temperature research of iron-containing silicates and alloys. This was followed by a post-doc position at the University of Edinburgh (The United Kingdom) where Dr Narygina carried on with the material property research at extreme pressure-temperature conditions with the focus on the structural properties of alkali metals. In 2011 Olga joined Malvern Panalytical. She started as an application specialist XRD in our Supply Center, Almelo, the Netherlands. A few years later, she progressed into an XRD product managerial role. Recently Dr Narygina moved to Australia and joined the APAC product/application specialist team.
