:: Mintek Meets ISO 9001:2000 Requirements  

Mintek’s Quality Management System (QMS) has been certified as meeting the requirements of the ISO 9001:2000 International Standard, following an assessment audit by the Society General de Surveillance (SGS).

The auditors concluded that Mintek’s QMS was well designed and capable of consistently meeting agreed requirements for Mintek products and services delivered to clients. The auditors therefore recommended Mintek for registration, which was made official on 8 August 2002.

ISO 9001 is a series of generic, internationally recognised standards for quality management, with the aim of ensuring that an organisation can consistently deliver products and services that meet its client’s quality expectations. The emphasis is on the importance of processes and their continual improvement.

Mintek’s scope of certification covers research, development and technology transfer in the fields of minerals and their products. Core competencies include:

  • Bioleaching technology development
  • Hydrometallurgical technology development
  • Pyrometallurgical technology development
  • Minerals processing
  • Inorganic chemical analytical services
  • Environmental chemical testing
  • Mineralogical characterisation of ores, intermediates and products
  • Development and commercialisation of process control equipment
  • Engineering design, supply, manufacture and construction of commercial minerals processing plants and equipment on a turnkey basis
  • Manufacture and supply of certified ore and mineral product reference materials
  • Regional development studies
  • Techno-economic feasibility studies

Mintek started its drive to develop and implement a quality management system conforming to ISO 9001 requirements in 1997, and is currently implementing a combined Quality, Environment and Safety management system that is aimed at meeting the requirements of ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and OHSAS 18000.
