Core scanning services, sales and rental

As of June 2007, following a successful collaboration with our parent company LIM sa, EGS can propose a high-quality and cost-effective core scanning service or, alternatively, our scanning equipment for sale or rental.

The ScanLIM allows the user to create a virtual "core-store" of high quality, true-colour and correctly scaled digital images. With a few mouse-clicks, it is possible to retrieve and display selected zones or reconstruct an entire borehole.

Borehole information is included in the data files in order to ensure systematic archiving.

The system is transported in kit form and can be assembled and operational on site within 20 minutes.

The core scanning itself can be accomplished by a single operator, however having an assistant available for positioning and removing the core boxes will significantly improve productivity.
