Full automation of electron microscopy is now a mature technology that is being applied internationally mainly for mineralogical characterization. This technology has increased
the speed and reliability of the characterization of ores and mineral processing products. It allows developing the most appropriate beneficiation technology for a new ore body. It helps to determine the potential, the optimization and the
limitations of mineral concentrator plants. It can also be applied to the betterment of the environmental management of the metallurgical residues. This presentation will discuss the main approaches for fully automated electron microscopy.
Additionally, an application case is presented, focusing on the characterization of complex ore of rare earth minerals. © 2012 Materials Research Society.
