This online course will provide an introduction to the practicalities of using portable x-ray fluorescence instruments (pXRF) in the mineral exploration and mining environment. On the first day, we will cover a variety of themes relating to pXRF best practices, including the strengths and weaknesses of pXRF, how pXRF instruments work, the value proposition of pXRF data, designing a fit-for-purpose pXRF survey and pXRF calibration. On the second day, a series of case studies will be presented on the use of portable X-ray fluorescence in mineral exploration and mining workflows including exploration for porphyry copper, low-sulfidation epithermal Au-Ag, VHMS and orogenic gold deposits, as well as a case study of how pXRF fits within a mineral exploration workflow.
Day 1 (April 12: 9:00am – 1:30pm PST) Introduction to pXRF
Day 2 (April 13: 11:00am – 4:00pm PST) Advanced Case Studies in the Use of pXRF
