Our core logging and data analysis services include:
Our specialist core loggers can conduct geological and geotechnical logging as part of your team, for your team, or independently contributing to mining studies. We can also provide training for your team in the field for the logging and management of core.
Our acoustic televiewer (ATV) and optical televiewer (OTV) interpretation service provides rapid and highly accurate structural orientation for determining joint sets in stability analysis. We use geophysical data, geotechnical logs, and photos taken of the core to assess the structural setting.
Photo logging of core
While we always recommend geotechnical logging of the whole core at the time of drilling, we can undertake photo logging of the historical core, for surface and underground diamond holes that were not previously logged. We provide Rock Quality Designation (RQD) and fracture frequency spreadsheets on a per-metre or rock mass domain basis, formatted for your database.
