Discover a revolutionary technology to explore and analyse core
Our patented X-ray machine and software technology establishes a new standard in mineral extraction and core analysis. With unprecedented speed, resolution and data sharing, we aim to transform the mining industry.
“The mining industry
must be future-proofed”
“The mining industry must be future-proofed. The challenge is to find more minerals at lower costs and in a more sustainable way. That's our objective.”
To Orexplore, it’s no wonder that a centuries-old industry must adapt its working methods to a new era. An era with an entirely new need for information, efficiency and sustainability. For the last 10 years, Orexplore has strived to come up with future-proof technology that meets all these demands. This is the result…
Orexplore Insight® — the proprietary software that allows geologists to see inside the drill core
Orexplore Insight® visualises the whole core, with detailed elemental concentration and density data, allowing geologists to analyse minerals and structures with interactive tomographic 3D views. You can analyse 100% of your core from anywhere in the world — using your laptop or a local network share.

GeoCore X10 — our patented X-ray technology that delivers mineral information in just minutes
GeoCore X10 X-ray scans one meter drill core and then provides the information to Orexplore Insight® software in just 15 minutes. Unlike traditional measurement methods, the drill core is scanned without having to be destroyed.
Some of Orexplore’s customers use their own GeoCore X10 and scan the drill core directly at the mine. Other customers send their drill cores to be scanned at Orexplore’s office in Stockholm or Perth.
“All of us at Orexplore spend every day working hard to develop and refine our technology. Our true passion is to help our clients discover more minerals with better precision. We also strive to make mining more sustainable in the future.”
— Dr. Mikael Bergqvist, CTO
Each drill core becomes more expensive, while the demand for rare metals is increasing. The future of mining depends on greater precision.
From the beginning, we have set out to develop game-changing technology within our field. Our strong innovation culture has led to unique patented software and a desire to continue future-proofing the mining industry.
Today’s minerals are found deeper in the rock. This means that more rocks must be crushed and more drill meters made. These methods create unnecessary imprints in the environment. Imprints that can be avoided with new and more sustainable working methods.
1 – Work from anywhere
Our mission is to extract as much information from the rock as possible and make that digital geological information available from anywhere.
2 – Virtual Core Farm™
Comprises a digital archive from the scanned drill core of the logging process.
3 – System integration
Striving for seamless integration with geomodelling software, such as Leapfrog, Move, Acquire and Vulcan.
Work with us — digitise your core
Benefit from near continuous real-time data by deploying the GeoCore X10 on-site. Alternatively, have your cores scanned in one of our labs in Perth, Australia or Stockholm, Sweden.
Deploy one or several GeoCore X10’s on-site to reduce logistical overhead and take advantage of quicker data turn-around times and improved workflow of non-destructive analysis. The service includes both machines and operators.
This option is targeted at smaller scale scanning needs, typically less than 1500m per month as an ongoing need or for a specific drilling campaign. The core samples are scanned at one of our scan lab locations and the data is provided for client analysis.
