Downhole Navigation

Hitting drill targets whilst maintaining productivity is a challenge in the industry. Having access to quality survey data in real time is critical to meeting this challenge. Without it, you run the risk of not knowing where the hole is, or missing a target completely and wasting the cost of drilling the hole.

Accurate and reliable survey data gives you the confidence to make informed decision on drill hole progress against the plan in real-time. As an IMDEX leading brand, REFLEX provides the complete end-to-end solution for overcoming these challenges to allow the accurate intersection of targets.

The IMDEX Downhole Navigation solution provides your complete downhole needs, from surveying the hole and project creation of drilling programs, to fast and accurate rig alignment through to monitoring the directional progress of the individual borehole with specified directional drilling software.

With the latest integration of IMDEXHUB-IQ™ with Seequent’s Central software means you now have real-time 3D visualisation of the drillhole.

REFLEX has a reputation as the industry leader in digital downhole data acquisition systems for mineral exploration. With over 40 years of industry experience, you can feel confident you are using proven technology you can trust. IMDEX’s Downhole Navigation solution provides accurate, reliable information in all ground conditions.

IMDEX's end-to-end Downhole Navigation solution

An end-to-end solution like IMDEX's Downhole Navigation solution offers all the associated benefits of working with one trusted technology provider for a complete solution. Resource companies and drilling contractors can now benefit from operational efficiencies by utilising one company for all your sensors, downhole navigation equipment, data management software and technical support needs.


The award-winning cloud-based hub sits at the heart of IMDEX’s solutions, providing real-time secure access to information between the field and the office.


Our latest highly accurate north seeking gyro provides survey data within record time using multishot or high speed continuous modes. Integration into IMDEXHUB-IQ™ ensures instant access to result data anywhere, anytime.


Get instant survey data wherever you are, as you need it. This highly accurate driller operable magnetic survey instrument is capable of single-shot, multi-shot and orientation surveys. Drill crews only needs to be trained once to cover all surveying needs.

Seequent Central Integration

IMDEXHUB-IQ™ integration with Seequent’s Central software means you now have real-time 3D visualisation of your drillhole data.


Quickly and accurately aligns drill rigs in surface and underground operations. The driller operable device takes approximately 10 minutes to complete, minimising downtime, improving productivity and saving costs.


These customised motors provide drillers the option to make alterations to the drill direction easily as required. You can change directions by simply adjusting deflection settings to ensure intersection of the target.


The addition of the patented and proven REFLEX ROTA-LOCK OVERSHOT™ system to the REFLEX GYRO SPRINT-IQ™ minimises survey downtime in diamond drilling applications.


Make informed decisions whist drilling, with the flexibility to change your drill plan before it’s too late. With an easy to use interface, view actual survey and drill hole data to see if you're tracking towards target and if your drill plan is still achievable.
