Join Bryan Bandli & Monica McGrath-Koerner on February 25th to 27th for the SME 2019 conference in Denver, Colorado. Bryan & Monica will be attending this event and speaking with attendees about RJLG’s mining & minerals and metals services. With over 6,000 industry professionals, 120 technical sessions, and more than 550 companies exhibiting, this conference is an excellent opportunity to gain insights into the mining & metals community.

Along with attending, Bryan & Monica will be giving a presentation on February 27th at 9:25AM titled “Distinguishing Fibrous Minerals from Asbestos in a Serpentinite Ore Body.” An abstract to this presentation is as follows:


“An investigation was performed to determine if asbestos minerals are present in a serpentinite hosted ore body. Field and laboratory examinations were performed using polarized light and scanning electron microscopy, Raman spectroscopy, and x-ray diffraction. Several fibrous minerals, including asbestos, were observed. The presence of both asbestos and non-asbestos fibrous phases is mineralogically interesting. This assemblage is a useful case study for how regulated methods to identify asbestos in bulk materials could potentially fail to identify these non-asbestos fibrous phases correctly, and could over-estimate the amount of asbestos present within the core.”
