Jeff Olsen speaks with The Northern Miner Podcast

Jeff reflects on the global mining industry, drilling and shares positively about his hopes for the future.

This episode (below) features a conversation between the Norther Miner Podcast and Boart Longyear CEO and Veracio Chairman, Jeff Olsen. Jeff describes his view of the global mining industry, the impacts of inflation, which parts of the globe he sees the most growth, and the future of drilling, including developments in artificial intelligence and real-time on-site data processing.

...if you can get those answers with our TruScan technology in 30mins, over satellite data transfer, that geologist can look at that data at a much higher quality in terms of seeing those high-definition pictures as well as the elemental analysis, as well as the auto structural logging information that we've developed from AI, you can make decisions much quicker. And the ability to develop orebodies out there fast is going be a trend out there in the mining industry and is going to be necessary to meet the demands of a new green world.

Sample Scanning
TruScan™ offers explorers and mine geologists non-destructive and accurate elemental data of chips and core, right there in the field. Capable of scanning 80 to 100m (200 to 300 ft) of core per 12-hour shift (depending on required data density) and many more meters (feet) per shift on RC chips, a single unit can potentially scan the core from multiple drill rigs, legacy core, or a combination of both.
Data + AI for Orebody Knowledge
A permanent record of core in the cloud is the best place to store accurate data that more precisely models your orebody knowledge.
