Novo Resources Corp advises that it has signed a 3-year agreement (with an option to extend to 6 years) with Intertek Testing Services (Australia) Pty Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Intertek Group, for the provision of on-site laboratory and sample preparation services and PhotonAssay services.

Intertek will manage an on-site laboratory at the company’s Golden Eagle mill designed to prepare samples from the company’s planned infill drilling campaign at the Beatons Creek conglomerate gold project for PhotonAssay in Intertek’s new state-of-the-art facility in Perth, Western Australia. Intertek has agreed to provide Novo with priority access to two brand new Chrysos PhotonAssay units which are currently being installed in Intertek’s Perth facility and should be fully operational by late May and early-July, respectively. Novo has committed to, and Intertek have agreed to provide, a minimum of 20,000 PhotonAssays per month for each Chrysos Unit once fully operational.
