Precision Petrographics of British Columbia: Worldwide Petrographic Thin Section Service
Welcome to Precision Petrographics.
The field of geology studies the data stored for millennia within geological structures, providing humanity with a deeper understanding of our world and how it formed. Petrographic thin section preparation, also referred to as a petrographic slide, is an integral part of geology as it prepares a physical sample for analysis.
However, perhaps due to the nature of its subject matter, petrographic services are slow to change. The industry has used the same technology and methodology for decades.
This is the reason why Precision Petrographics came to be.
Why Choose Us?
Precision Petrographics is a new company built on a solid foundation of experience. Our employees have
more than a decade of experience in the field, but our purpose goes beyond mere experience. Our aim
is to move the industry forward in both technology and service.
Newer Technology: Unlike most service providers, we are the manufacturers of our own equipment.
This was a necessary focal point for the inception of Precision Petrographics as our primary objective is
Our Service: Even in rigorous scientific fields a service should still be focused on customer care. This fact
is something we take very seriously. When dealing with clients we want them to know that they have
access to our staff not only to respond to emails, but to converse with them directly.
Why? Because having a relationship with our clients allows us to understand their needs and
expectations, and in turn provide a better more personalized service.
Thin Sections: Kimberlite and more
British Columbia is a central hub for thin section preparation worldwide. This is no surprise, mineral
products are Canada’s fifth largest export and British Columbia is perfectly located for international
trade. Precision Petrographics is keenly aware of the rigorous standards set forth by its discerning client
base. That is why we specialize in kimberlite thin sections.
Discovery of Kimberlite deposits can completely shift not only a mining company’s profits but the
economy of a country. Thus, it is the ideal proving ground for a petrographics company looking to
elevate the industry’s already high standards.
Of course, we create petrographic slides for any project. If it is a mineral, Precision Petrographics is at your service.
