Fun Fact: Arrakis, incorporated in 1987, was named after the planet ARRAKIS in the Sci-Fi movie Dune; but instead of the blue spice, we are mining the gold!
If you have an ore or a concentrate that you believe is enriched in gold, silver, or platinum give us a call or send us an email. Our experts will give you personalized attention to your specific needs and advise you on which test would give you the most optimized result.
What makes us different than our competitors, is that you are not just number to us. Your sample is not shoved into the furnace with dozens of other samples with the same generic flux formulation. Your sample is unique to any other and therefore, is treated as such. Customized Fire Assay is one of our specialties. Fire Assay is becoming a lost art as it is no longer prevalent in most Schools of Mining and Universities.
Our facility is equipped with an "in house" laboratory for expedited results. Arrakis is known for it's state of the art technology, chemistry, and methodology in the recovery of stubborn refractory ore, including slag.
We custom build pilot plants, conduct exploration drilling, design process systems, conduct analytical test work, provide project and time management. We consult on existing mines, improving optimization in production and profit. We provide ore and mineral characterization, which determines the presence of precious metals within the ore, as well as, determining the steps on how to recover the metal within the ore. Mineral Processing, is one of our specialties and includes alternative leaching, autoclave, gravity concentration, froth flotation, magnetic separation, and flame atomic absorption.
