Analytical Facilities

The world class analytical facility that is NCIG has a range of equipment including a Thermo-Scientific Neptune multi-collector inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer. This is linked with a New Wave 193nm Excimer laser ablation system, a Thermo-Scientific Triton thermal ionization mass spectrometer, a VG354 thermal ionization mass spectrometer and a New Wave Micromil.

The Centre also has access to rock crushing/milling facilities and a heavy mineral separation lab, including two magnetic separators. The School of Earth Sciences also contains a dedicated geochemical preparation laboratory and a Hitachi TM-1000 Desktop Electron Microscope (SEM).
