ENVAL Group introduces ELAM (Enval Laboratoire d’Analyses Minières) its mining laboratory located in Yamoussoukro, Ivory Coast;
Enval’s adventure started in 1999 with Cabinet Enval, a consulting company specialised in the environment and agroindustry. Very quickly Enval felt the need for an assay lab to sustain the company.
In 2002, Enval Laboratoire became a company on its own and started developing other fields, following the evolution of the industry in Ivory Coast.
Today, Enval Laboratoire is one of the most important laboratory of physico-chemical and microbiological analyses in West Africa. The company specializes in microbiological and physico-chemical tests and analyses. The company has recently expanded its activities and conducts soil, foliar and oil analyses, as well as noise-measuring and air quality analyses. Enval goes now into the mining world with its Mining Lab (Minerals and Lubricants). Enval Laboratoire is ISO 17025 accredited since 2012 and ELAM has already started the process too.
ELAM’s ambition is to service the mining industry right from grassroots exploration samples up to bullion analysis.
Thanks to our Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) you can have confidence in the chain of custody for your samples. Once logged into the system, you can follow your samples throughout the assaying process and access immediately to your results.
