Characterization of Tailings – Real Time Technologies – Green Mining

Why Choose Us

The Geccotec Idea

We develop and apply real time sensing technologies which allows for high resolution characterization of geological or artifical soil bodies. This can be mine tailings or waste deposits. The acquired in-situ data build the basis for risk assessment of waste deposits or the estimation of resources in mine residues called tailings.

The Geccotec Network

Geccotec works closely with experienced and well-respected companies in the field of geological exploration.

About Us

About Tailings

Tailings Characterization by MPT

Real time measurement of element concentrations by utilizing our MPT technology. The Metal Probing Tool (MPT) contains a x-ray fluorescence based detector which measures metal concentrations. The detector is build in a small probe which can be advanced into the tailings material by static force. The tool can be combined with Cone Penetration Testing (CPT) and other detectors like Electric Conductivity (EC) for supplementary data.
We can use all kind of equipment for pushing the probe like CPT-trucks and units, Direct Push rigs (Geoprobe) or hydraulically driven stand alone rigs.
The MPT approach deliveres accurate and high resolution data of element concentrations in real time. Compared to traditional drilling and sampling it is cost effective and very fast (up to 150 m/day).
