:: ZEISS Announces Co-operation Agreement with Petrolab and MinAssist
ZEISS, a provider of imaging and analytical solutions to the natural resources industry, announces today a co-operation agreement between itself, Petrolab Ltd. and MinAssist Pty Ltd. Both companies are existing users of ZEISS automated mineralogy technology and the co-operation will leverage the strengths of each company in the mining industry.
Petrolab is an analytical services company with significant expertise in sample preparation and applied mineralogy. James Strongman, principal mineralogist at Petrolab commented “Our decision to purchase ZEISS’ Mineralogic technology was based on its strength in geoscience and the company’s vision for the future of automated mineralogy. Our announcement today of a formal co-operation with ZEISS is grounded in our mutual desire to advance the application of automated mineralogy technology across industries.”
Dr. Ben Tordoff, segment manager for mining and minerals at ZEISS noted “Today’s announcement will benefit ZEISS greatly, not only in its ability to leverage the strengths of both MinAssist and Petrolab, but through the access to bespoke expertise in the staff of each company.” Today’s announcement comes as ZEISS further supports the industry through its platinum sponsorship of the International Congress for Applied Mineralogy last month, and a comprehensive global events programme over the next 12 months.
