Latest news – February 2016

Wheal Jane’s unique position with regards to experience in the mining era of tin and tungsten analysis has now been used to support the South West and the UK’s first new metal mine in over forty years. Drakelands (formerly Hemerdon) in Devon is operated by Australian mining group Wolf Minerals and went into full production last autumn.

Wheal Jane Laboratory has been involved in various aspects of the analytical support. These include operating as technical support to the SGS-operated on-site laboratory at Drakelands, and assisting SGS in Canada by carrying out wet chemical analysis on pre-production concentrates to validate instrumentation methods used. Other work carried out involved drill core analysis for ore body evaluation, environmental check samples, smelter contract penalty element analysis and helping sub-contractors identify performance issues.
