Innov-X-Africa showcasing products at African Mining Indaba

International elemental analysis company Innov-X-Africa will once again exhibit at this year’s Investing in African Mining Indaba which will be held at the Cape Town International Convention Centre from 5 to 8 February 2024.

“Mining Indaba is the pinnacle event for promoting long-term investment in African mining. Attracting a broad and prominent speaker line-up, including industry professionals, policymakers, and stakeholders from around the country and beyond in order to promote economic growth and foster positive changes in the mining industry,” said Stuart Bateman, Innov-X-Africa’s Sales Director.

“This will be the 15th time that we have participated at the Mining Indaba.”

“The 2024 conference aims to celebrate Mining Indaba’s 30th anniversary by taking a new direction and purpose. The theme, “Embracing the power of positive disruption: A bold new future for African mining,” reflects the objective of finding solutions and paths towards positive change in the mining industry.”

Innov-X-Africa represents technology solutions providers including Evident (formerly known as Olympus), Belec, a manufacturer of optical emission spectrometers for metal analysis and Geotek Ltd. (UK), a company that specialises in high-resolution, non-destructive analysis of geological cores.

“With an increasing demand for portable X-ray fluorescent (XRF) instruments, owing to more multi-analysis being conducted in mining, we will showcase the Vanta XRF, BoxScan and detectORE products on our exhibition stand.”

The BoxScan was launched in 2020 by UK-based core analysis service provider Geotek, and is used to conduct core analyses, with five built-in sensors that allow for data collection.

The company will also showcase the detectORE – launched in July 2022 – from Australia-based technology company Portable PPB.

The detectORE comprises a technology system used to analyse low-level gold using proprietary software and the Vanta portable XRF from Evident.

“The detectORE makes analysing samples in remote areas easier, owing to its being able to yield results within eight hours.”

“Evident have recently released updated Vanta model analysers. The updated Vanta Max and Vanta Core portable XRF analysers combine the “exceptional accuracy, speed and durability of the Vanta series with improved ergonomics, a refreshed interface and enhanced connectivity for greater comfort and productivity,” said Bateman.

“We expect the exposure at the Mining Indaba will increase demand for our products.”

“Innov-X-Africa, as part of an international company, markets its products to global mining majors, minors, mid-tiers and juniors, which often look to African prospects to enhance their asset portfolios. This, in turn, enables the company in South Africa to create more local employment opportunities, establish new training initiatives and contribute to the local supply chain.”

Innov-X-Africa’s partners – Evident, Portable PPB and Geotek – are expected to exhibit alongside the company at this year’s Mining Indaba.
