ZEISS solutions for the mining industry allow you to maximize your recovery of natural resources and minimize losses across the range of mining functions.

Mining in the 21st century is an increasingly challenging industry, with greater demands on scientific analysis than the mining operations of the last century. Remaining ore deposits are of lower grade, higher textural complexity and are under greater operational cost constraints. Due to increased geopolitical tensions and falling commodity prices, mining companies are seeking significant scientific validation to reduce the risk within the mine model before investing in mining projects. Moreover, once an operation is underway, it is essential that mineral processing flowsheets are optimized to maximize economic recovery and minimize losses. Increased mineralogical understanding is essential in order to address modern challenges across the entire mining value chain from exploration to refining. With the broadest portfolio of mineralogy and texture solutions for the mining industry and a rich history in geoscience, ZEISS is ideally suited to help you meet the challenge.

Maximize your recovery of natural resources and revolutionize your plant performance with ZEISS mining solutions:


Reducing the cost of discovery with the ability to analyze large volumes of rock samples quickly to locate mineral deposits is the key to modern exploration workflows.

Mine planning:

Composing an accurate block model based on quantitative geometallurgical data that takes account of ore variability is key to the success of the operation.

Mining extraction:

Material handling and comminution represent some of the largest costs in the mining lifecycle, but are also areas where the largest gains can be made in reducing operational costs.

Mineral processing:

Due to the volume of ore being processed in modern mining operations, incremental improvements in target mineral recovery can provide immediate impact to the bottom line.


A repeatable and reproducible product impacts directly on reputation and product value, making rigorous testing of end product essential.

Process development:

To minimize risk ahead of the mine planning phase, potential complexities and variability in the recovery process must be assessed through metallurgical test work and flow sheet modeling.
