She was born in Bratsk of Irkutsk region from where in 2003 moved to Mirnyi, Sakha (Yakutia) Republic. Having completed secondary education in G.S.S. (General Secondary School) No. 12 with an in-depth study of English language she was admitted to Saint-Petersburg National Mining University to the Mineral Processing Department in 2007.
During 2011, having won a grant of Binder+Co AG company, she was training at MONTANUNIVERSITÄT LEOBEN, Austria at Mineral Processing Department. After the training, she began to work in BrugTech GmbH company that supplied equipment for the mining enterprises in Russia and the CIS countries.
In 2012 she got a university degree as Mining Engineer and went on to full-time postgraduate study at her native department. In 2015 successfully took a doctorate and got her PhD.
In 2015 she has founded EnProTech company where today holds Director General position.
The comparative analysis of gold CRM homogeneity from global manufacturers
Certified Reference Materials are applied for graduation, instrument calibration, assessment of technique validity, inter-lab control of production test results, etc. The use of CRMs is regulated by the codes governing the mining industry. Reporting to the standards laid out in these codes is a mandatory compliance for gold mining industries which are presented on the Stock Exchange. A CRM is a sample where the concentrations of one or more analytes have been quantified by valid methodologies and certified with valid documentation.
For gold (Au) CRMs, one of the key properties is the homogeneity of the CRM sample (i.e. testing for nugget effects). Quantifying this homogeneity by the Relative Standard Deviation (RSD) is critical for assessment of laboratory results and the follow up of quality control (QC) failures.
Taking into consideration the notion “Certified Reference Material” that by its nature is assumed to be homogeneous, any variation is attributed to laboratory error (i.e. the variance attributed to the sampling error is less than the analytical error); so how homogenous are commercial gold CRMs?
