I wouldn't be doing many assays at $600 a piece, that much I do know.  I only checked on the 3 element one so now I am curious as what the pricing would be for full element at the lab I went to....

What has changed with the XRF analyzers?  The last I heard is that they could be useful kit for some applications but not the best thing to rely on.  The calibration and targeted industry for the analyzer could lead to errors in the results, maybe the new ones for mining are better in this aspect?  Don't they just look at and analyze what it can see, which is a small window into the sample?  So in this small window it could look like 1000ppm gold but actually the sample contains 1ppm overall?  Or it could show that nothing is there but if you crush and pan the rock there is gold there as the windows it was pointed at had nothing to see.

Maybe I am missing something here but I would sooner buy a Falcon MD-20, or crush and pan, or assay before I would go down the XRF road, but that's just me.

The photo in the link is from a grass roots project in Red Lake. It looks a bit more compelling than what you have.

You must be in an interesting area. I'd keep looking around.

If you do decide to get assays some at some point, don't rule out base metals either.

Wow.That assay was cheap.Lucky to get away with less than 600.00 in B.C. <~ShOcK~> <~ShOcK~>.Luck,Mcbain.

Different lab located on Vancouver Island same cheap price, I've used them a few times.

Also used American Analytical in the USA a few time and a lab in Saskatchewan, none have charged unreasonable prices.
