Structural Geology

Reliable, verifiable and auditable core orientations

Effective discovery, planning, and extraction of orebodies relies on accurate structural data.

Critical to understanding an orebody is understanding its structural makeup, from the structures that host ore to those that cross cut it causing complexity and impacting mine design. The processes of core orientation, collecting structural measurement and data interpretation feed directly into ore-reserve estimation, geotechnical mine design, mine planning and safety issues – a very good reason to ensure this process is reliable and auditable.

REFLEX’s core orientation solutions are effective for contact or non-contact core orientations and can be used in any ground condition.

The REFLEX IQ-LOGGER™ hand-held structural logging device can simply be rolled along the orientation line on diamond core automatically recording depth and structural measurements.

The stereonet plotting functionality in ioGAS™ and in the REFLEX IQ-LOGGER™ software allows real time viewing of these measurements for better decision making.
