T2: ALS Metallurgy and Iron Ore Technical Centre (IOTC) Tour

Wednesday 13 September 2017

This tour will incorporate two major ALS facilities in Perth – Balcatta and Wangara. The traditional home of ALS in Balcatta is where non-ferrous commodities such gold, base metals, graphite and uranium are tested, and also houses support services including mineralogical examination, a HLS lab and on-site assay lab for metallurgical products. The world's largest independent pilot plant facilities are also on this site, including SABC, HPAL and HPGR.

The second leg of the tour will incorporate the IOTC which provides a unique integration of analytical, metallurgical, mineralogical and ancillary testing services specifically focused on the iron ore sector. Through this large purpose-built facility in Wangara, ALS has achieved a quantum expansion of analytical and metallurgical testing capacity enabling delivery of best practice standards for turnaround time and technical service. The tour of the ALS IOTC will cover both analytical and metallurgical services.

Depending on the feedback from delegates who express interest in this tour it could be adapted to covering only the Balcatta site non-ferrous. Please indicate preferences or feedback to Rachel.
