Core sample preservation

Supplier: Intercept Australia
10 August, 2012

The Intercept Mineral Sample Packaging System has been designed and tested specifically for packaging of mineral samples in a modified atmosphere packaging inert environment.

This system will prevent oxidation of the samples for long term storage and transport.

The system is both suitable for samples in core trays and bagged samples.

Since the system design 18 months ago, in conjunction with GXD Supplies, our Philippines Intercept Distributor, more than 300,000 samples have been packaged and sent to laboratories in Australia, South Africa and Canada maintaining their integrity for the duration of storage and transport.

The system is now operating on many sites in the Asian region.
