Ore Research & Exploration
ORE Pty Ltd is a leading global producer of certified reference materials (CRMs) for the mining, exploration and analytical industries with around 1,200 customers in over 75 countries. We specialise in producing the highly respected OREAS brand of CRMs and unsurpassed matrix-matched (custom) CRMs.
ORE Pty Ltd has been servicing the global metalliferous mining industry since 1988. We produce the highly regarded OREAS brand of Certified Reference Materials (CRMs) used for quality control in grass roots exploration, resource definition, near-mine exploration, grade control operations, metallurgical laboratories and commercial analytical laboratories. More than 125 different CRMs, prepared from natural geological materials and cover many styles of mineralisation, are available in the OREAS range. All ore grade gold CRMs are tested by INAA to confirm and quantify absolute tolerance intervals. We are the only producer able to offer a guarantee of the homogeneity of gold (and PGE) in all OREAS and custom CRMs irrespective of the presence of coarse gold in the source materials. Matrix-matched CRMs are produced according to client requirements in batch sizes from 50 to 5,000 kg, packaged in unit sizes from 5 g to 200kg and certified in a rigorous round robin program for key analytes.
ORE Pty Ltd clients include all major international mining houses (BHP Billiton, Vale, Anglo American, Rio Tinto, Glencore Xstrata, Newmont, Barrick, Freeport, Gold Fields, GoldCorp, MMG, Newcrest, Harmony, etc.) and the major commercial laboratory groups (ALS, SGS, Bureau Veritas, Intertek). The foundation of our success is built on a strong record of industry-leading innovation, a high level of repeat business from our many loyal clients and word-of-mouth commendation within the global mining community. Over the years we have pioneered a number of technological advances that enable us to produce CRMs to a level of homogeneity we believe is unparalleled in the industry. Our latest innovation is the introduction of Super CRMs to the OREAS range. Super CRMs feature certification of full analyte ICP-OES and ICP-MS suites by a range of digestion methods. Up to 150 analytes are characterised in a single CRM making them ideally suited as a control in ICP applications.
