:: AMMTEC LTD has Acquired OPTIMET LABORATORIES  

AMMTEC LTD, Australias largest Metallurgical services company, has acquired OPTIMET LABORATORIES of Bowden, SA, giving Perth-based AMMTEC the widest national coverage of mineral processing laboratories in Australia. This follows AMMTECs takeover of Metcon Laboratories in Sydney in 2001.

OPTIMET LABORATORIES specializes in providing high quality flotation testing and consultancy services to the mining industry. The laboratory has a range of national and international clients, including a strong group of base metal clients in South America.

The result of this latest acquisition is that AMMTEC now has coverage on the east coast, the west coast and the central band of Australia, firmly establishing the company as Australias leading metallurgical services provider, said managing director Rod Smith.

The managing director and consulting metallurgist at OPTIMET, Kwan Wong and Ray Doherty, will both remain with the company. Both Kwan and Ray have extensive industry-recognised experience in the flotation of gold, copper, lead and zinc ores.

AMMTEC has appointed Paul Capps to assist in project management at OPTIMET. Paul was employed by metallurgical company AMDEL for 28 years and will help to broaden OPTIMETs client base as well as the scope of services offered.

OPTIMET LABORATORIES will become a division of AMMTEC LTD. It will retain its name and its current staff after the takeover.
