:: Technology World First for Chinese Alumina Producer

China’s Chalco has become the world’s first alumina producer to adopt leading-edge automated mineralogy for research and development.

With the installation of a QEMSCAN® in the Zhengzhou Research Institute of Chalco (ZZRI), in Henan Province, Chalco is also the first Chinese organization to use this technology.

Chalco is the largest producer of alumina in China and the second largest producer of alumina in the world. It will use the QEMSCAN® in company research and development programs focusing on bauxite and other base metals.

ZZRI Director Dr Wangxing Li said, “Accurate and fast mineralogy research is more and more important to modern minerals processing, and QEMSCAN® makes this possible. Chalco, as an international, multi-metal mining company, has already put a strong emphasis on this and intends to use QEMSCAN® fully to improve our research and production."

Intellection CEO Calvin Treacy said the Chalco purchase was a milestone in Intellection’s global expansion.

“This is the beginning of a partnership that will see Intellection and Chalco work closely on collaborative projects which will open up new research in alumina exploration and production," Mr Treacy said. “It will also showcase QEMSCAN® to the rest of the Chinese mining sector, where we expect to achieve strong growth."

The QEMSCAN® installation will be carried out jointly by Intellection and Carl Zeiss China. Intellection has a number of strategic agreements in place with Carl Zeiss world-wide.
