The JBI’s analytical laboratories undertake a wide range of analytical testing – both chemical and mineralogical; and processability testing. Routine analysis is undertaken on behalf of the government to verify the quality of bauxite being processed by the bauxite companies.
The lab does analytical and research tasks on a variety of inorganic based sample types for industry and agriculture. Primarily these tasks include bauxite and alumina, rocks, limestone, gypsum, shales, cement, sands and occasionally water, specifically from a source. The JBI lab also conducts analytical assays for a wide range of elements, whether major or trace. This is done using classical wet chemistry methods and modern instrumental techniques.
