Case Studies

The geoLOGr has been successfully used at projects around the world.
Here are some examples.

Project

Spectral logging and dilution estimation of kimberlite drill cores from the Northwest Territories, Canada

Kimberlites are challenging to log because they often consist of minerals that are difficult to discriminate visually, such as serpentine and clay minerals. They also contain country-rock clasts in variable abundance, which directly affect diamond grades.

Using the geoLOGr it was possible to:

  • Produce drill core logs that are consistent with visual logs, but provide more compositional detail
  • Estimate the abundance of country-rock dilution

Project

Spectral logging of legacy drill core from the Giant gold mine, Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada

The Giant gold mine is a prime example of a shear-zone hosted gold deposit within an Archean greenstone belt. It produced over 7 Moz of gold during its lifetime. Gold mineralization is primarily linked to paragonite-bearing alteration zones. However, alteration is often subtle and difficult to visually assess.

Using the geoLOGr it was possible to:

  • Identify different zones and types of alteration
  • Link alteration halos to gold mineralization
