Iran is one of the most important mineral producers in the world, ranked among
15 major mineral rich countries, holding some 68 types of minerals, 37 billion tonnes
of proven reserves and more than 57 billion tonnes of potential reservoirs. Mineral
production contributes only 0.6 percent to the country’s GDP.
Add other mining-related industries and this figure increases to just four
percent. The most important mines in Iran include coal, metallic minerals, sand
and gravel, chemical minerals and salt. Khorasan has the most operating mines in
Iran. Other large deposits which mostly remain underdeveloped are zinc (world's
largest), copper (world's ninth largest), iron (world's ninth largest), and lead
(world's eleventh largest). Iran with roughly 1% of the world's population holds
more than 7% of the world's total mineral reserves.
Difficult issues in the mining industry can cause challenges beyond your capabilities.
RMRC has helped clients in the mining industry save time and money by providing
reliable, cost-effective answers. Our non-routine analytical laboratory specializes
in solving complex problems.
Mining is the second earliest endeavors of humankind (after agriculture). It is
recognized as one of the first industries of civilization and has taken the main
role in our lives.
RMRC offers a complete range of services in the area of mining from prospecting
to analysis. Modern facilities installed at RMRC permit our experts perform numerous
compositional and microstructural tests on minerals including SEM, XRD, XRF, atomic
absorption, spectrometry, and so on.
Using such equipment, a wide range of elements/phases can be characterized accurately.
Examples are heavy metal ions, rare earth metals, ferro-alloys, precious metals,
As a leader in mining and materials testing, moreover, we are specialized in on-site
materials analysis thanks to the comprehensive range of the portable equipment available
at RMRC. Our highly-skilled analysts visit the site and determine the best testing
methodology, perform the test, and back to RMRC headquarters, report the results.
