PROVIDE ACCURATE DATA AND RESULTS
The TruCore handheld alerts the user to activate the tool every run, reducing the risk of missed orientations due to operational errors.
Core orientation is easier with TruCore. There is no need to disassemble the tool to obtain an orientation mark.
Trucore is compatible with all Boart Longyear™ head assemblies.
Improve driller health and safety with reduced manual handling time and a better ergonomic position when reading core orientation.
INCREASE DRILL STRING RELIABILITY
Optional full-length extended outer tubes eliminate the need for extension barrels, therefore, reducing the number of joints in the drill string.

"In a discussion about which core orientation platform to use for a planned exploration project, our manager saw the system at a recent trade show. One thing we liked about the TruCore™ system was the ease of use. The handheld unit allows the driller to activate the tool with a very minimal amount of delay.
Another distinct advantage was the tooling did not require disassembly to obtain the orientation mark. The TruCore orientation tool proved to be robust with no problems encountered under tough field conditions. Our team has used other core orientation tools in the past and we found the TruCore tool to fit more seamlessly with the drilling process. We found that the TruCore tool performed with consistency with no flaws found in our data results that were attributable to the instrumentation or the process defined by Boart for its use.
After using the Trucore system for the duration of our program we identified the core-marking guide as a weakness in the process under certain conditions, discussed our concerns with the product development team, and provided them with a suggestion for improvement based on our experience. A second suggestion was made to increase the amount of time before the handheld ‘times out’ while rotating the core barrel to find the correct orientation. Both suggestions were well-received.
Given the very positive experience with the Boart team and performance of the design and technology, we would certainly use the TruCore tool again and would recommend the system for core orientation in core drilling programs."
