General Project Timeframes

Ideal standard turnaround (may take longer during periods of heavy workload*):

  • 10-12 weeks for mineral separation only
  • 14-16 weeks for full analysis

*When GSS has many samples in the lab waiting to be processed, expected sample turnaround will extend to 16-20+ weeks due to the heavy workload.

Update April 2024: Good news! GSS is catching up on the prior sample backlog, and turnaround times are returning close to "normal" (see above). Now is a great time to send GSS your samples! Note: GSS is prioritizing combo min sep & analytical projects over just min sep projects.

Please contact us prior to shipping to discuss likely turnaround.

Rush service options are available upon request at increased pricing.

Please use the sample registration form when sending samples to GSS, and see the packing note.
