Gyroscopic survey tool helps intercept high-grade gold orebody
Jaguar Mining announced favorable growth exploration drilling results from the Turmalina Gold Mine located in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil. The results reported were from 10 diamond drill holes from ongoing in-mine exploration targeting shallow, high-grade ore shoots. An integral part of Jaguar Mining’s quality-control program utilized the Gyromaster gyroscopic survey tool. The GyroMaster was able to ensure accurate in-run and out-run surveys to maintain Jaguar Mining’s high level of quality control.
After the Jaguar Mining team completed the comprehensive Stockholm Precision Tools (SPT) gyroscopic survey tool training, they were able to deploy themselves, without requiring external assistance. The SPT training covered maintenance, operating procedures and ensuring that pre/post quality check shots were in line with best practice. Jaguar Mining gained the confidence to use the north seeking GyroMaster borehole surveying instrument independently and this assisted in delivering their great results.
Key benefits of Gyromaster gyroscopic survey tool
- Continuous survey ability to ensure maximum accuracy with data points at every cm.
- North seeking gyro with real-time data shown via SPT’s intuitive software.
- Add-on available which allows you to retrieve a core sample.
“Providing customers with the best equipment possible is our number one goal,” said Orlando Ramirez, CEO of SPT “hearing the success Jaguar Mining has had with the Gyromaster motivates us even further to continue to push boundaries in the downhole surveying industry.”
All of SPT’s surveying equipment is designed, developed and manufactured in-house. This has enabled the highest level of quality control to ensure every tool delivers the most accurate results possible.
