A Brief History

Geo-Western is a Utah based geophysical consulting and instrument manufacturing firm with offices located in Sandy City.

The parent company, Westex Inc., was incorporated in 1967 to conduct mining operations in Western Utah. During that same year, Geo-Western was acquired by the company. Geo-Western manufactures induced polarization equipment, power supplies, transient EM and other equipment related to the mineral exploration industry.

Many Geo-Western field activities since 1967 involved projects in the precious and base metals industries. Other activities include experience in coal, oil, and groundwater investigations for domestic and overseas locations.

Previous major field services provided by Geo-Western include induced polarization, resistivity, ground magnetics, and time-domain electromagnetics. Other services included down hole I.P., VLF, and self potential surveys.

In 2021 Geo-Western sought to help its customers maximize their success by focusing on equipment sales and service, while continuing to assist clients with data interpretation and geophysical consultation.
