As such, Kluane provides skilled drillers and supervisors staff, as well as appropriate mud additives to obtain the high recovery required in a diamond drilling project. Once the sample reaches the surface, drilling helpers handle it properly so that the geologists obtain reliable geological information.
Kluane uses TW (Thin Wall) rods that have a bigger inner diameter and as such, the core obtained has a larger diameter when compared to the Q line, which is the most commercial. (see table)
