The GeoCore X10.

Digital geology at your fingertips.

The GeoCore X10® is a highly sophisticated and efficient core analyser, delivering digital geology at the touch of a button. Evolving from medical imaging technology, the GeoCore X10® provides rich onsite 3D imagery, detected elements, structures and more. By extracting as much information as possible, miners, geologists and explorers can make informed decisions, increase efficiency and productivity, and enjoy a sustainable mining process.

Unpack how it works.

The next step in digital mining is here.

The GeoCore X10® dramatically reduces the time it takes to analyse core samples. Operated by a single rotary push-button, the machine is easy to use, and an intuitive graphical interface guides the operator. 

Up to four, one-metre core samples can be scanned and analysed within the hour, delivering information on detected elements, emerging mineralogy, geological structure, texture, and density stored digitally and available to explore in minutes via our Orexplore Insight® software.

Drill down to the detail.

Efficient
Cores can be scanned directly after extraction — no cutting, pulverising or prepping. With a 15-minute scanning time, four cores are completed in just 60 minutes.
Practical
Designed for onsite use, the GeoCore X10® is portable and can be brought to your site for on-the-spot, near real-time analysis. If that’s not possible, drill cores can be sent to one of our labs for analyses instead.
Non-destructive
The GeoCore X10’s non-destructive capability preserves the bedrock formation, whilst allowing 100% of the extracted drill core sample material to be analysed.
Detailed
The GeoCore X10 scans surface-to-center, revealing the drill core’s interior (not just the surface like most other technologies) giving you never-before-seen core detail and information.
