Laboratory Budgeting & Cost Analysis 

Laboratory costs and budgets are not cheap but compared to minesite operations, appear to be quite small in scale. Hopefully, these costs are not being neglected, however, it is more likely, are you getting value for cost outlay. ILS Technical Services Division can review laboratory costs and budgets and hopefully, offer an alternative solution that will provide optimum performance from the laboratory for the best price.


Many geologists find it useful to know the cost per sample for grade control and drilling for site requirements for their own budgets. No doubt, the accountants too. We can provide a detailed cost analysis per sample per method which also allows department allocation of costs distribution, particularly as minesite laboratories are generally cost neutral.
