Inline Borehole Element Recognition and Identification Analysis

Image
The reconnaissance of deposits is done by extensive exploration drilling. The borehole debris is collected for later analysis in the laboratory. This is a time consuming and expensive procedure. Furthermore, the derived samples represent an average of a remarkable drilling distance so that information about small shifts will be lost.
 
The borehole probes developed by JCB are based on X ray fluorescence and offer the logging of the borehole immediately after drilling. The results are therefore available in time and can be transferred automatically into a deposit map. This enables an active control of the deposit reconnaissance, using the BOSTON software.
