This is Orexplore

Mineral explorers usually have a pretty good idea of where minerals can be hiding. But without the necessary tools and equipment, their chances of getting to them are slim. Orexplore was founded around the idea that a big part of a geologist’s work is to analyse rock – a process which hasn’t fundamentally changed for hundreds of years.

After extensive research, we have developed a technology to not only analyse the elemental composition of rock, but also to visualise the rock’s internal structure. And we can do it in a fraction of the time that a standard lab assay would take.

Like most other industries, it’s also about data. By converting physical rock and related facts into digital data, we open the door to a new world of analyses. Who knows in which way our brilliant customers will take advantage of this new opportunity? We’re only at the beginning of the digital revolution of the mining industry. We hope that you will join us on our journey!

Working at Orexplore

Through science, programming and engineering – we work every day to achieve what no one has managed to do before; to map an entire drill core sample in a record 15 minutes.

We push technological boundaries

Our company culture is about challenging each other to come up with strong arguments when presenting new solutions to a problem. Only then can we move forward.
