You want
to evaluate the land constructability potential
to identify and quantify clay-mineral species in the soils and rocks

Our solutions
GISMO provides a solution in your projects on geomaterial analysis, like:

  • a diagnostic of land constructability potential,

by the characterisation and quantification of different clay species (< 2 μm) in a soil

  • a high detail mineralogical wealth of your agricultural or vineyard soils,

by the characterisation and quantification of different clay-mineral species in your soils

  • a reconstruction of the depositional environment of your studied rock or sediment,

by the characterisation and quantification of different clay-mineral species

Appareil DRX
Broyage-avec-mortier-en-agate

Two methods are differenciated according to the sample preparation:
– Powder method for minerals
– Oriented clay mount for clays

The sample analysis is realised by a X-ray diffractometer (D4, Endeavor, Brucker AXS).
The identification and quantification of clay-mineral species are obtained by the interpretation of diffractograms.
