Sodern participates in the E-Chile explore congress, which will take place virtually from November 10th through the 13th.
Sodern will present its revolutionary neutron logging tool for mining.
FastGrade is an opportunity for the mining sector to rethink and optimize, in real time, its production cycle, based on the ore grade.
Assays from cored and reverse circulating boreholes or blast hole samples, do not always provide truly representative analyses and are very expensive. However, borehole logging provides in situ elemental analysis, making the use of altered samples no longer necessary. Used for many years in the oil & gas industry, the technology is based on a neutron analytical technic called Pulsed Fast & Thermal Neutron Activation. This technology explores new dimensions and is going to be a game changer for the mining industry.
This tool is primarily aimed at measuring boreholes drilled for exploration and resource estimations. One tool logs more than 100 kilometers a year by measuring the numerous 140 mm diameter holes commonly drilled on sites, using reverse circulation drilling. Operators quickly promoted the tool and its immediate benefits.
Be sure to attend our highlight lecture November 12th, session drilling: “Near real time Grade control with downhole assay tool”, taking place virtually, with Vincent Flahaut, Key Account Manager.
He will be available to discuss with you for new opportunities.
We look forward to connecting with you!
