Course Content

Day 1 - Effective Successful Sampling
A hands-on guide to designing and running effective sampling programs - all aspects are explained using case studies and practical exercises.

You will:

  • Learn how to critically assess and design sampling and sample preparation systems – from drilling through to process sampling
  • Understand the importance of good sampling practice
  • Understand the sources of sampling error and the cost of poor sampling
  • Understand and apply Gy’s sampling theory to sample size selection and the design of sampling protocol

Day 2 - QAQC of Assay Data
Tackles the issue of best practice and presents a set of practical guidelines for ensuring you achieve highest data quality.

You will:

  • Understand the principles of QAQC
  • Learn the answer to - How good is my data?
  • Understand basic statistical methods relevant to the analysis of assay QC data
  • Identify QC anomalies and learn how to deal with them
