Our CRMs are developed exclusively for the mining, exploration and analytical industries and are distributed worldwide in over 135 countries. Our products cover a wide range of commodities, concentrations and mineralisation styles and are well characterised in rigorous inter-laboratory testing programs and certified in accordance with International Standards Organisation (ISO) recommendations. The OREAS® range of certified reference materials (CRMs) are prepared entirely from natural ore materials sourced from deposits throughout Australia, Southeast Asia, North and South America and Africa. This includes refractory gold, gold occluded in silicates and other metals hosted in refractory minerals. Being sourced naturally from real ore deposits, guarantees our CRMs will behave the same as your field samples during sample fusion and digestion. This upholds the integrity of the analytical process providing absolute confidence in your assay data.
ODM was founded by entrepreneurial geologist Stuart Averill in 1974 when heavy mineral geochemistry was emerging as the key investigative tool for ﬁnding mineral deposits buried under thick overburden.
