About the Stoneman Analytical Facility

The Stoneman Analytical Facility proudly hosts fundamental and state-of-the-art analytical instruments that help us put your minerals in motion. 

  • With SELFRAG, state-of-the-art mineral separation provides a method for extracting individual minerals in their natural form, that is unmatched on the continent. 
  • With two XRD instruments, it has never been easier to provide mineralogical, phase, stress and strain and high temperature routine analyses.
  • With XRF, fundamental elemental analyses for major, minor and trace elements are routinely performed.

UP staff and students enjoy first hand on site availability of these instruments and there is almost never a quiet day in this analytical hub. Universities and companies who need R&D assistance form part of the repeat customer base that keeps the Stoneman Analytical Facility current and up to date with analytical needs and trends.
