QA/QC Procedures & Implementation

Quality Assurance and Control is paramount in any laboratory setting to be able to reproduce any sample result consistently.

The monitoring of key indicators in the laboratory is not just centred around the analysis of reference materials, but other key parameters in each step of the analytical method that affect the outcome of the final calculated result.

ILS Technical Services Division adopts the approach of complete transparency for quality systems and monitoring. Without this approach, all aspects of laboratory operations can be affected from staff training to method application to result reliability and the flow-on effect to mine/geology and metallurgical reconciliations can make minesite operations that much more difficult with systematic biases and errors.

ILS Technical Services Division will have a monthly quality control format that covers the gamut of preparation checks, internal and external checks, and round robin participation. Each quality system will be tailor-made for site specifics and budgets.
