Under the agreement, Corescan will work closely with GeoResolution to deliver Corescan’s advanced core photography, mineralogical imaging and geotechnical mapping technology to the Mexican market. GeoResolution’s geological and mineralogical expertise coupled with Corescan’s leading core logging technology delivers a team that can add value from exploration through to geo-metallurgical assessment.

Corescan are mobilising the first mobile laboratory, equipped with the latest Corescan technology, to GeoResolution’s head office in Hermosillo, with plans to commission further units throughout the year. The laboratory will offer:

• high resolution core photography;
• the identification and mapping of alteration minerals, assemblages and chemical compositions;
• the mapping of physical core textures and morphology through high resolution laser profiling; and
• an integrated data management and visualisation solution via CoreshedTM.

Neil Goodey, Managing Director of Corescan said, “Mexico is an important market for us, and finding the right partner with proven capability, both technically and operationally, was key. We are pleased to be working alongside GeoResolution who bring significant value to the partnership as we establish our mineralogical services in the region.”

“The use of hyperspectral imaging for the continuous scanning of drill samples will provide a solid and reliable tool for mining companies. It will help define and improve geological models as well as identify new exploration targets. The application of this technology in differentiating key minerals will also value-add mine planning and geometallurgical studies. GeoResolution feels privileged to establish a strategic alliance with Corescan, a world leading company with proven success in exploration projects and mining operations across Australia, Chile and the Asia Pacific Region.” said Julio Palomino, Director of GeoResolution.
