What our clients are saying about us...

John Vinar

General Manager Exploration, Mindax Limited

“LabWest have been working closely with us since 2010 and have become our primary exploration assay laboratory for our Uranium, Gold and Copper Projects. We have discovered a pleasant and supportive service with prompt feedback to any query. Brad and his team take great care and pride in generating quality data and reports and delivering results in a timely manner.  LabWest will take the time to listen to our special requests and recommend an appropriate method to deliver more accurate assays for our interpretations. Our relationship and trust has grown every year.  LabWest pricing is reasonable for the various methods on offer and we have awarded consistently without hesitation additional work to LabWest when it’s required.”

Dr. Steve Batty

Managing Director, Rubianna Resources

“The sort of package an exploration company needs is reliable, accurate analysis, reasonable costs and fast turnaround. LabWest has met all of these requirements. We switched a couple of years ago to them and they’ve delivered in spades.We are really pleased with the turnaround times. Decision making is based on results so fast work in the laboratory has helped us quite a lot. We’re very happy with LabWest’s service. They’re a good crowd to work with and we have no hesitation in highly recommending them”

Dr. Nigel Radford

Principal, Radford Geochemical Pty Ltd.

“I have used LabWest on numerous occasions for specialist jobs where high quality data was essential. On each occasion LabWest has handled the jobs in timely fashion. The data have been of a very high quality. I was especially pleased with the precision and low detection limits which come from the routine use of microwave assisted acid digestions, and the high quality of the ICPMS data. I would have no hesitation in recommending LabWest to others in the mineral exploration industry”

Dr. Rob Taylor

Executive Diretor, Aurora Minerals

“We didn’t accept LabWest’s work blindly,” said Rob Taylor for the third edition of LabWest’s newsletter Analyse This. “We’ve compared their analyses with that of other laboratories in both high and low values and if we had thought accuracy wasn’t there we’d have gone elsewhere. “We have confidence in LabWest’s work, we’re happy with the service, the prices are competitive, their system of data supply is good and turnaround times are generally just a fortnight, though sometimes we’ve had our results back in a week.”

Bryan Bourke

Exploration Manager, Altura Mining

“ In the heady days of 2011 it was difficult for a junior explorer to get customer service from the established laboratories. With the commencement of drilling at Pilgangoora in early 2011 - Altura’s new lithium discovery in the Pilbara – it was of paramount importance that assay results turnaround and data quality be assured. After being given notice of 2 months turnaround from the laboratory being used initially there was no choice but to seek an alternative. LabWest were approached and they provided all that was needed – quality, price and turnaround – and a very proactive customer service. Altura have used Lab West for all Pilgangoora work since 2011 – and has highly valued the quality of their work and service.”
