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

Hi, In the document with the protractors, their is no BQ size. Is there any way i can access one. Thanks in advance

Core Orientation

Don’t underestimate the risks involved when relying on inaccurate and un-auditable core samples.

Accurate, auditable and cost effective core orientation plays a vital role in determining the true structure and viability of any mining or geotechnical construction project.

Good planning, based on reliable, quality data provides the best foundation for project profitability.

Logging Core

Understand your orebody.

In order to understand the distribution of mineralisation and also to understand how structures will impact on mine design accurate core logging data is essential.

Often avoided due to time and inconvenience, if there is a real opportunity to collect the data quickly and simply, on-site, and based on accurate core orientation data, there is a higher likelihood of the data being captured and for good decisions to be made based on this accurate, valuable data.

Interpreting Data

Ad hoc software, manual manipulation and data input with a high risk of human error, and geochemical data integration challenges, combine to make the interpretation of logging data both difficult and often highly unreliable.

When overcome, the resulting information can provide a sound foundation for the safe and successful extraction of ore.

Tips & Tricks

  • Question . Attributing structural data points by colour
  • Question . Visualising different structural types on the same plot
  • Question . Displaying small circles along with poles to planes for each colour group
  • Question . Plotting other statistical features on the same stereonet
  • Question . Interactively add user planes to the plot window
