Using much higher energies than traditional X-ray methods, Chrysos PhotonAssay detects and counts atoms of gold in as little as two minutes.

PhotonAssay allows large samples to be measured and provides a true bulk reading independent of the chemical or physical form of the sample. Using uniquely numbered sample jars, the process is completely non-destructive, and all samples can be retained for further analysis or testing if required.

The technology is also measurably safer and more environmentally friendly than previous assay processes, something that aligns with Intertek’s stated purpose of bringing quality, safety, and sustainability to life.

For gold producers Chrysos PhotonAssay delivers faster, more accurate gold analysis on larger samples with lower costs.

Benefits of PhotonAssay

  • More representative sample analysis and results
  • Improved definition of reserves and resources
  • Lower labour requirements, less chance of human error and/or accident.
  • Reduced supply chain cost, reliance and management
