BGC Service feature

Bavarian Georesources Centre (BGC) service feature

Service feature

  • Independent advice and / or accompaniment of mineral raw material projects (mainly metallic raw materials, industrial minerals as well as stones and soils, if necessary also on site, national and international)
  • Investigations in the availability of mineral raw materials
  • Contrac research

Analytics (examples)

  • Rock and mineral determination (incident-light or transmitted-light microscopy, X-ray diffractometry, Raman spectroscopy)
  • Litho-geochemichal analysis of major and trace elements (X-ray fluorescence analysis, LA-ICPMS)
  • Mineral-chemical analysis for determination of chemical composition and element distribution in solid phases (elektron-microprobe, LA-ICPMS)
  • Isotope chemical analysis (mass spectrometry)
  • Analysis of fluid inclusions in minerals (mikrothermometry, Raman spectroskopy)

Good national and international networking also provides access to other laboratories to solve specific problems.
