Optimizing Efficiency with Drill Core Rod Handling: TactEx Industries’ Core Baskets

As the days grow shorter and the weather is starting to change, the mining and exploration industry winds down from a busy season. Traditionally, on many drilling sites, the norm was to sling full core boxes back to the core shack for logging. However, with the passage of time, exploration companies are increasingly opting for a more efficient and secure method of transporting core samples. Enter the TactEx Core Baskets – a game-changing innovation that not only ensures the safe transportation of vital samples but also streamlines the re-stocking process for drilling additives and supplies.

They serve a dual purpose, efficiently restocking the drill on-site during the project, thereby eliminating the need for empty or inefficient backhauls. This optimization saves valuable time and resources, contributing to smoother operations and improved project timelines.
  • Easy Handling and Orientation: TactEx Core Baskets are engineered with practicality in mind. Featuring a drop gate, they are designed for easy handling and precise orientation during landing. This simple yet effective feature reduces the risk of mishandling during helicopter operations. Making our core baskets the reliable and user-friendly solution for core transport.
