Portfolio of Services
We provide a full range of geochemical laboratory services suitable for the differing requirements of greenfields exploration to production through to mine closure.
Our team spend time to understand your project and use their expertise in the mineral exploration and mining sectors to create tailored analytical programs specifically for your unique needs.
Every step, from sample receipt until the laboratory begins the analysis must be suitable for the specific needs of your project and sample matrix and completed with meticulous care to minimise contamination. Our expertise and state-of-the-art equipment ensures your sample preparation will provide results you can trust.
Our team can also provide advice on the most suitable sample preparation methods to meet your needs and will work closely with you to understand exactly what answers you want and how best to get them.
Our sample preparation services cover drill and rock core, soil and sediment and vegetation.
Every mining project follows a number of distinct stages – in which case the analytical techniques required will vary to meet the specific needs of both the stage of the project and the individual requirements of the program itself.
We will consider factors including whether a partial extraction or complete digestion, combined with multi-element or specific element analysis might be required, whether the level of accuracy and precision delivered by specific analytical methods meets the needs of your situation and cost-effectiveness based on your budget and project stage.
Our expert team are available to guide you in choosing the most suitable analytical methods and will work closely with you to recommend a program to deliver the results you need.
We provide a broad range of analytical methods to meet your needs from exploration to mine closure.
Lab Construction and Management
MSALABS provides high quality construction and management of minesite laboratories. Our high-quality and cost-effective modular laboratory facilities can be built to your specific project requirements on site. We will consider your space and individual technical requirements to deliver a customized laboratory to support your project’s success.
On-site laboratories reduce the lead-time for results, meaning you get your data faster and the project keeps to the plan.
Our services include:
- Engineering design
- Construction and installation management
- Software, systems and process implementation
- Technical support
- Laboratory staffing and management
- Laboratory audits

Technical Bulletin – Carbon
Graphite is a native element, meaning it occurs naturally in pure elemental form and along with diamond is a polymorph of carbon (C). Our Technical Bulletins provide information on the types of occurrence and recommended analytical methods. Download.
Technical Bulletin – Lithium
Lithium is the lightest metal in the periodic table with a specific gravity of just 0.534. It does not occur as a metal in nature. Our Technical Bulletins provide information on the types of occurrence and recommended analytical methods. Download.
Technical Bulletin – Cobalt
Cobalt (Co) is a transition metal with a long history of industrial use that dates back thousands of years. Our Technical Bulletins provide information on the types of occurrence and recommended analytical methods. Download.
How Representative is Your Data
Reliable interpretation of any geochemical data is predicated on the assumption that what has been analysed accurately represents the geological system being studied.
This brochure discusses the relationship between sample size and reproducibility. Download.
Where’s The Juice
Multi-element geochemical analyses offer a wealth of information that is relevant to the entire commodity cycle and go far beyond information about potential grade.
From base metals, to volatile elements, MSALABS has a package to meet the needs of any exploration project. Download.
