SALT LAKE CITY, Feb. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Boart Longyear (www.BoartLongyear.com), the world's leading provider of integrated drilling services, equipment and performance tooling, is proud to launch the TruCore™ core orientation system in Canada, following successful launches in Australia and Latin America last year.
"Over the past 125 years, Boart Longyear has continuously delivered innovative solutions for the drilling industry," said Adam Tomaszewski, product manager, instrumentation for Boart Longyear. "TruCore is no exception. We've conducted extensive testing to make sure TruCore provides accurate data, is easy to use whether you're underground or in bright sunlight, and enhances safety with less manual handling."
TruCore addresses a variety of the challenges that drillers and geologists face while conducting core orientation:
- When you need accurate data and cannot risk missed orientations
TruCore has been rigorously tested to ensure that the handheld device lets drillers know when to activate it. This minimizes the risk of missed orientations.
- When you need an easy-to-use solution
With its highly visible, flashing LEDs, TruCore notifies the user when there is direct alignment, which reduces the total measurement time and makes TruCore the ideal solution for bright daylight, lowlight and underground operations.
- When you want to reduce manual handling time and increase safety
With TruCore, there is no need to disassemble the tool to obtain an orientation mark. As a result, you will reduce the number of manual handling actions a driller or driller assistant needs to perform.
- When you want an alternative to the current market solution
As a trusted supplier of drilling equipment and tooling for more than 125 years, Boart Longyear offers the first alternative solution in the marketplace for electronic core orientation. It is easy to switch and start using TruCore today.
Available in sizes BQ™ through to PQ™, TruCore is now available to rent in Canada.

About The Core Orientation Process
Core orientation is essential to the Mining & Resources sector as it marks and determines the precise orientation and position of core while in the ground. This information helps determine faults, cleavages, joints, mineral lineation and other geophysical properties, which lead to better mapping for exploration and mine site development.
