Aurora and MSALABS sign an agreement to establish an analytical laboratory in Kazakhstan
Aurora Minerals Group is pleased to announce an exclusive partnership with the geochemical analytical laboratory MSALABS. MSALABS is one of the most prominent international laboratories headquartered in Langley, Canada. MSALABS provides a full range of analytical studies in the mining industry in accordance with the requirements of JORC and NI 43-101 reporting standards.
Aurora Minerals Group and MSALABS signed a Memorandum of Cooperation during the Kazakhstan Day event, which took place at the PDAC convention on March 7, in Toronto, Canada. The memorandum provides for the exchange of knowledge and experience in the organization and construction of a laboratory complex, the use of modern technologies for accounting and movement of samples, and control of laboratory and analytical studies at all stages.
The joint cooperation will also involve the construction of a geochemical laboratory in the capital of Kazakhstan, Astana city. This will ensure improved logistics of samples and high throughput, which, in turn, will make the decision-making process for leading exploration and mining companies a lot more efficient. The sample preparation facilities will be equipped with the latest Canadian equipment, with an initial capacity of more than 60,000 samples per year.
“Aurora Minerals Group is thrilled to partner with MSALABS on this exciting new project”, said Kaisar Kozhamuratov, CEO of AMG. “Our companies share a commitment to delivering the highest quality services to our clients, and we are confident that this new laboratory will set the standards for analytical services in the mining industry”.
As a result of a partnership with MSALABS, Aurora closes the full cycle of services in the field of geological exploration: from design and geological consulting to the implementation of all types of fieldwork with subsequent analytical studies. This provides an opportunity to exercise control at all stages of work and implement the principle of full responsibility for the results from the project to the final report.
The signing of the memorandum took place as part of the participation of Aurora Minerals Group in the world’s largest convention dedicated to the exploration of mineral resources PDAC (Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada), which was held from 5 to 8 March in Toronto, Canada.
PDAC is an annual event that attracts industry representatives from over 135 countries. This year the exhibition was visited by 30,000 people. Aurora Minerals Group was represented at PDAC as an exhibitor and organizer of the Kazakhstan Day event.
A number of promising Kazakh exploration projects were presented at our booth, and Aurora representatives also spoke about the technologies and methods used by the company to explore minerals in Kazakhstan and Central Asia. We were happy to exchange ideas and experiences with colleagues from different countries, and are always interested in bringing the best world practices into the exploration of Kazakhstan.
Also, within the framework of PDAC 2023, the annual event Kazakhstan Day was held, organized by our company to highlight the main aspects of the development of the mineral resource industry in Kazakhstan, including local legislation and licensing, the potential for discovering new deposits, as well as the introduction of innovations and advanced technologies in the process of mineral exploration.
