The latest instrumentation combined with classical analytical techniques carried out by our experienced team of chemists give assurance to clients requiring high quality analysis suitable for commercial settlement.
LSI was the first non-British laboratory to be listed by the London Metal Exchange (LME) in 1998 and is also listed by the Minor Metals Trade Association (MMTA). Founded in 1994 to provide independent high quality non-ferrous metal, ferro-alloys and metal concentrate commercial settlement assays to miners, producers, traders and end consumers, LSI’s high quality analytical services are supported by the global inspections services of the Intertek network.
In 2012 Intertek acquired LSI. Combining the high quality commercial settlement analytical services from the LSI laboratory in Rotterdam with the global inspections services of the Intertek network is the basis of our strong global minerals team.
