TruScan™ Innovative Core Scanning Technology
Boart Longyear’s TruScan is a fully integrated, rugged and mobile imaging and geochemical technology housed in a mine-specification trailer able to operate in the most challenging greenfield environments, as well as within the relative comfort of a core yard. It can scan 60 to 100 m of core per 12-hour shift (depending on required accuracy).
TruSub Drilling System can increase the efficiency and productivity of drilling programs through a real-time drill parameter display and automated reporting of key performance metrics. Productivity reporting metrics and live rig parameter monitoring can be available in real-time from anywhere with an internet connection.
TruCore™ UPIX – New Core Recovery Technology
Orient your core correctly with TruCore’s reliable technology. It’s easy to use and the highly accurate core orientation system determines the true direction of the mineralization of a geological feature.
TruShot™ Digital Survey Tool
TruShot provides immediate, accurate results so you can make quick survey decisions. Precisely determine the azimuth and dip measurement of the borehole, the location of the hole and from where the core is retrieved.
Longyear Bits are engineered to drill faster, last longer, and put more core in the box! The easy and smooth drilling characteristics make for improved tracking and balance in the hole when drilling begins which brings faster penetration rates, longer bit life, and a higher cutting speed.
XQ rods are stronger, last longer, and are easier to use. With innovative engineering to provide the ultimate in performance and longevity, these patented XQ drill rods feature self-aligning thread start geometry. See how you can significantly increase your depth capacity, wear life, and productivity with XQ wireline coring rods.
