SGS is pleased to announce the opening of a geochemical sample preparation facility in Yangon, Myanmar. The recent and continuing liberalization of investment and mining laws in the country is prompting interest in Myanmar’s geological potential from international mining and exploration companies.

These companies can now enjoy the peace of mind and confidence in their analytical results that SGS provides. The Yangon facility continues to expand the reach of SGS’s unmatched geochemistry network. Samples will be prepared in-country and delivered as pulps to SGS’s existing laboratories in the Asia Pacific region.
