Core Acquisition
Kluane knows that the fundamental goal of drilling is to obtain the cores. We are also aware that in most mineral deposits the areas of economic interest are associated with fragile sectors of the rock mass, either by geological failures, alteration or by the very nature of the material of interest, mainly when it comes to sedimentary deposits.

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)
