Real-Time Targeting with Quality Structural Data- Bringing QAQC to Oriented Core Drilling

Introduction: Oriented core drilling methods have rapidly evolved over the last several years, leading to a recent uptick in use and multiple case studies where proper use of the tool leads to discovery. Modern orientation tools utilize solid-state accelerometer sensors to reliably determine and mark the position of the downward acceleration vector of gravity on…

Take the leap to NIR technology – a few points about mineral detection in the field.

Near Infrared Measurement Options for Today’s Exploration Geologist   Near infrared spectroscopy (NIR) is a proven analytical technique that measures light reflectance in the visible and near infrared region of the spectrum (350 to 2500 nanometers) to identify and differentiate various minerals.  While not all minerals are discernable with NIR, many of these minerals that…
