Core Plug Offcuts
Core plug offcuts are the traditional medium for mineralogical analysis. Any sized core plug can be analysed by Automated Mineralogy. Geologists can specify where on the plug they would like to have the sample imaged, and at what orientation.
Plugs can be prepared as epoxy resin mounts or as polished thin sections. Thin sections that are already mounted may also be suitable for Automated Mineralogical analysis.
Associating petrographic observations with the assistance of a mineral map significantly reduces the time required for petrographic evaluations.
Raw samples or thin sections can be submitted to Vidence for a full mineralogical, diagenetic, and pore evolution interpretation.
