In a recently conducted field trial of the REFLEX EZ-GAMMA™, the innovative combination of the REFLEX EZ-GYRO™ (a north seeking gyroscopic survey instrument) was coupled with the REFLEX EZ-GAMMA™ in order to provide critical information on the hole position and lithology of the surrounding rock, in near real time.
The coupling of the REFLEX EZ-GAMMA™ with the REFLEX EZ-GYRO™ and their communication with the secure, cloud based, IMDEXHUB-IQ™ in near real time, provided significant efficiencies for one of the world’s largest gold producers, KCGM, at their Fimiston Open Pit (known as the Super Pit) in Kalgoorlie.
“Being able to look at the gamma logs while still on site was very useful. It would usually take days for this data to be available.”
David Nixon, Senior Geologist
With both instruments being driller operable and, as a result, no service providers required to perform the task, the gamma logging was done without downtime delays and at minimal cost.
“Apart from the time and cost advantages, using the rig wireline,
we could get to the bottom of the hole. Many service providers cannot get to this depth. However as we were able to, we managed to get the maximum data all the way to the bottom.”
Guru Jabbel, REFLEX Gyro Products Support Engineer
