Your Virtual Core Farm™
Orexplore’s Insight software, brings powerful instant visualisation of the analysis results. Projects in Insight organize geological information from drill holes, comprising a digital archive of all scanned drill core in the logging process - a virtual core farm that can be made accessible wherever you are.
In addition to an interactive high resolution 3D view of the structure, Insight provides an accurate and comprehensive breakdown of the geochemical composition, elemental concentrations and density as well as information on texture, fabric and grain-size.
The CT scan generates a 3D visualisation of the drill core’s interior, revealing both planar structures, such as foliations, beddings, veins and faults and linear structures - currently uniquely provided by Orexplore. The GeoCore X10 supports rotational orientation preservation of oriented drill cores. This orientation will then be maintained in the 3D tomographic data, allowing for true representations of Alpha and Beta angles.
The measured density is presented at sample resolution, with one data point per scanned sample. These density values are based on the weight of the sample, as measured by the load cell of the GeoCore X10 during scanning, and the rock volume i given by the 3D tomography image.
A density variation along the sample is estimated at 8 mm resolution. These density values are based on the mass as determined by the mineral composition of the rock and known mineral densities, and rock volume.
The measured density values, being based on direct weight measurements, are generally more accurate. The quality of the estimated density values depend on the mineralogical model fit and are thus generally less accurate, but still useful for looking at smaller scale relative density variations.
Chemical element concentrations for elements with atomic number 1 to 92 (Hydrogen to Uranium), excluding noble gases and radioactive elements, are presented in three different ways, in a line graph along the drill hole, concentration map and in a classical table. The line graph is suitable for finding salient occurrences (hot spots) of sought for elements. The concentration map is useful as an overview of detected elements, and for identifying geological facies and correlations between elements. In table format, measured elements ( >16) are distinguished from inferred elements, which are calculated from the mineralogical model. The ambition is to continuously improve the analysis to measure as many of the lighter elements as possible. Concentrations may be viewed on short segments or on an aggregate scale.
The detection limit varies across the range of elements, and is also dependent on the site specific geology, and improves with longer measurement time. Overall the detection limit varies between 1 to 100 ppm:s. For in-depth understanding of the possibilities and limitations of geochemical analysis, please get in touch.
Data Access & Storage
Data stored on local heavy duty servers are mirrored to an off-site data warehouse, to enable seamless data sharing with your organisation.
Orexplore Insight®️ allows you to export assay data, planar and linear geological structures and density to your preferred geo modelling software.
All data transferred over the Internet is protected by strong encryption to prevent eavesdropping or tampering. Continuous backups ensure that data isn’t list or misplaced.
