The analysis of rock materials straight from mining sites is now possible, according to Australian agency the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO).

In a press release, the organisation revealed that it has partnered with giant brands Imdex and Olympus, under the Deep Exploration Technologies Cooperative Research Centre, or DET CRC, to come up with a revolutionary product that would help miners save millions of money typically spent on on-site-related operations such as extracted material transport to laboratories and time-consuming methodologies on ore examination.
