Jorge Pablo González has a degree in industrial chemistry; He begins his career in the cement industry working for 7 years as a laboratory coordinator at CEMEX's central laboratory in Monterrey, Mexico. 19 years ago, he joined Malvern Panalytical México and has been responsible for demonstrations and training on X-ray-based products, oversees after-sales support for clients, and helps support the pre-sales department, ensuring that the client makes the best choice for analytical analysis. Computers with the right configuration and performance for the task. Jorge Pablo González masters the techniques of X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy (XRF), X-ray diffraction (XRD), Near Infrared (NIR), Laser diffraction (PSA), Dynamic Light Dispersion (DLS), among others and has extensive experience in fields such as cement, mining, glass, petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, fuels, metals and, finally, academic and research and development institutions.
Verification of the purity of the mineral grades, as well as the milling and production of the mineral granules, are the key performance indicators of the mines. Thus, particle and elemental size distribution analysis are well known analytical techniques. A common blind spot that mining companies do not pay enough attention to is mining mineralogy. Did you know that knowing the mineralogy of the mineral defines its properties during processing? For example, flotation, leaching, digestion, magnetic separation, etc. Knowing the exact mineralogy can allow companies to optimize their process, either by using reagents or chemicals or by maintaining their mills. During this presentation, our specialist will show case studies in which companies they have saved millions just by knowing the exact mineralogy. Everything is possible thanks to X-ray and near-infrared diffraction analysis.
