Narcotics detection surface scanner donation

CDEX : 03 November, 2008  (Application Story)
Arizona police receive ID2 Meth Scanner from BHP Billiton as donation in order to combat the growth of illegal drug use in the city of Globe
CDEX announces that a subsidiary of BHP Billiton has donated a CDEX ID2 Meth Scanner to the Globe, Arizona Police Department for use in its battle against illegal drugs. The ID2 Meth Scanner is a hand-held, battery operated device that detects trace quantities of methamphetamine while scanning surfaces.

Francis McAllister, Finance Manager of the BHP Billiton Base Metals Group, which owns the Pinto Valley mine located near Globe, stated, "BHP Billiton is committed to the communities where we operate and we support their efforts to educate people about the harmful effects of drugs and to fight drug abuse. To this end, we donated a Meth Scanner to the Globe Police Department to assist in their efforts to fight drugs in our community. No community is immune to the dangerous grasp meth has taken and we will continue to support the community in the battle against this non-discriminating, devastating drug."

Steve Schmidt, Vice-President of CDEX's Security Division, thanked BHP Billiton for their leadership, activism and concern for the Miami-Globe community. "We are grateful for the exemplary participation of this community-minded company," Schmidt said. "CDEX is honored to have its Meth Scanner selected as the tool to assist police in their fight against drug use and trafficking.

"CDEX pledges to work closely with Police Chief Lt. David Mullin, Sgt. James Durnan and local law enforcement to use the Meth Scanner to its maximum potential in the field," Schmidt continued. "The devastating and growing impact of methamphetamine on our communities demands that we provide better weapons to law enforcement and Child Protective Service agencies to fight this war. We are inspired by the actions of BHP Billiton management and are pleased that CDEX can assist with their efforts to make this community a safer place to live and work."

BHP Billiton, headquartered in Melbourne, Australia, is the world's largest mining company and one of the world's top producers of copper, silver, lead, uranium and zinc. BHP Billiton owns and operates the large Pinto Valley copper mine in the heart of Arizona's Globe-Miami Mining District located about 90 miles east of metro Phoenix.
