The REFLEX IQ-LOGGER™ is the latest in core logging technology. The device is defining new processes of structural logging and revolutionising the data collection and interpretation practises of past.
Mawson Resources were involved in a drilling campaign in Finland where the core and orientation line were in excellent condition, but the rocks were structurally complex and interpretations by traditional methods impossible to do in the time required.
In the nine month drilling campaign, the Mawson Resources team implemented the REFLEX IQ-LOGGER™ in the data collection process, allowing them to make timely structural interpretations to guide the exploration program.
The REFLEX IQ-LOGGER™ allowed the team to rapidly make core observations and structural measurements whilst in the core shed and then be able to identify fabric and folding patterns in real-time and match them with the geophysical interpretation. This allowed them to rapidly prioritise the selection of areas for detailed 3D analysis.
Using the REFLEX IQ-LOGGER™ resulted in a significant improvement in strucural logging efficiency and timeliness, with data being captured quickly and decision points reached sooner.
The timely integration of structural observations with 3D geophysical interpretation enabled real-time prioritisation of the drilling program, which significantly aided the project.
“The geologists are still using the REFLEX IQ-LOGGER™ and now understand the need to classify the data as it comes in, so that the final data is accurate and can be interpreted. The IQ-LOGGER™ was in it’s element here, because daily we had to quickly select a fan of holes from the geophysics whilst trying to reconstruct refolded fold patterns.”
