Why PMC?

We believe that the use of natural resources should be maximised to create benefit for everyone.  That the concentration of these minerals through mineral processing is entirely governed by the mineralogy and mineral texture of ores and that to fully realise the potential of an orebody, it is vital that mineralogy and textural relationships be well characterized and understood.


Through the development of state-of-the-art mineral analysing equipment (TIMA, MLA, QemSCAN & AMICS) and teamwork by the best professionals in the industry we can supply, train and implement mineralogical services to best assess an orebodies potential as well as aid in effective troubleshooting and optimization of mineral processing circuits.  PMC has been radically changing Mineral Analysis first by the investment into the development of the TIMA system now widely used in industry. We are also the first commercial laboratory to supply, train and monitor MineSite Mineralogy labs for both exploration geology and mineral processing operations, using state of the art and cost-effective benchtop SEM’s with the newest mineral analysis software (AMICS).  We have also built a team of skilled professionals with a wealth of experience, education and dedication to provide quality mineral services in a timely and cost-effective manner.
