:: SGS Begins Operation of On-Site Laboratory at Bomboré Project

SGS has commenced operations of an on-site sample preparation facility at Orezone Gold Corporation’s Bomboré gold project in Burkina Faso, West Africa. The facility is well equipped and has the capability to dry, crush and pulverize up to 700 samples per day in an environmentally sustainable manner.

Orezone commissioned and financed the construction of the facility in order to improve turnaround time for assay results from its ongoing exploration program at Bomboré. The facility can ultimately be converted into a fully functional mine site laboratory for future operations. SGS is pleased to connect this lab into the unparalleled global network of analytical expertise that SGS maintains in all of our laboratories.

The Bomboré facility complements SGS Minerals Services’ existing facilities in West Africa and further expands our broad network of 140 on-site, commercial and sample preparation geochemical labs around the world. SGS offers a wide range of services to the minerals sector including geochemical analysis, resource calculation, mineralogy, metallurgy, advanced systems, water treatment, energy and fertilizer minerals testing and trade services.
