"We have been using our InnovX Delta Premium XRF instrument for rock samples, drill hole samples, soil samples effectively on our Au exploration projects. We get results rapidly from our XRF instrument and could plan our soil line extensions, new drill targets, get quick results from our hand rock samples. By using the instrument we send the necessary rock and drill samples to analytical laboratory and we save from the cost."
"We have used the Omega XRF fairly extensively in our Canadian exploration efforts and are pleased with the results. In the right environment the tool provides fast and reliable geochemical information reducing lab costs and turn-around time."
"The X-5000 produces rapid, amazingly accurate, and precise geochemical data for us. We've recently discovered new rare earth element mineralization with the aid of the X-5000 and it has now become an essential tool in our field work and mineral deposit research, every geologist should have one!"
"We have been using our X-5000 and Omega portable XRFs to rapidly collect multi-element data from drill core, RC chips and soils, in the field and laboratory. These tools are being used in research & development projects to asses 3D spatial variations of geochemistry in large mineral systems (Au, U, Cu) that will effectively aid exploration targeting and better define locations for detailed sampling and further analysis. This technology has matured to the point that it can be effectively implemented in research projects as a front line tool."
"We acquired an InnovX- Omega XRF unit early in the 2010 field season. The unit went to Yukon, where it was used to test soils in the Dawson Range for the pathfinder elements (As, Sb) associated with gold mineralization. By using the Omega our crew could immediately identify and follow-up on mineralized trends exposed in our backhoe trenches. The trenching was more efficient and focused than it otherwise would have been, saving precious time and thousands of dollars. The Omega may have paid for itself already."
"The HZL Exploration Department acquired its first XRF from Innov-X in June 2010. The instrument, once its limitations are understood, allows for a rapid screening of material that give us a measure of exploration flexibility and long-term cost savings we've not had before. After six months, we've paid back the acquisition cost. And a second unit has just been delivered to us."
