Potential of innovative drill core scanning in the exploration and mining industry

Reference number
Coordinator MINALYZE AB
Funding from Vinnova SEK 300 000
Project duration March 2015 - June 2015
Status Completed
Venture The strategic innovation programme for mining and metal recovery – STRIM

Purpose and goal

QA/QC routines have been defined together with the participating companies. The scanning technology have been demonstrated both at Minalyze office and remotely. Scanning routines have been established based on a number of completed scanning projects. Data for effect analysis have been gathered and discussed with the participating companies. A workshop have been conducted in order to inspire students. Students of geology from different institutions participated and contributed both through practical exercises as well as through discussions.

Results and expected effects

All of the drill cores that were sent to Minalyze have been successfully scanned and the results met the expectations that had been outlined in the goals at the beginning of the project. Many of the effects that the data would have on the process have been verified through the participating companies.

Approach and implementation

Drill samples from an array of projects and a number of companies have been sent to Minalyze and have been scanned within the set time frame. The action plan was thoroughly followed and the plan worked well.

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
