Drilling Record: Wooden boxes versus plastic boxes - Core Case

Drilling Record: Wooden boxes versus plastic boxes

The records and materials collected by drilling methods are essential sampling products in a mineral project, which characterize deposit the type and will be used in later analyses.

The drilling and perforation campaigns in a project are high-cost procedures and therefore there must be measures for the proper management of the sampled materials, to better preserve them.

Have you ever thought about how to store drilling records?

Millions of dollars might be spent on a project to make an incredible drilling campaign, but after all the collection procedure, it is decided to store the samples in dubious conditions, opting for wooden boxes that are eventually cheaper.

This factor might be crucial for poor sample management, and significant losses can occur as a result of storage conditions. In other words, it ends up investing heavily in drilling holes, but in storing the data so that it is well packaged and organized for future analyzes and consultations with auditors, it decides to opt only for the economic criterion.

Remember that records are not just your project data, they are the geological legacy of your company’s mineral deposit.

This way, thinking of a smart alternative to store your enterprise’s drilling records is the ideal way to manage your samples!

Core Case plastic boxes - Why use Them

Millions of dollars might be spent on a project to make an incredible drilling campaign, but after all the collection procedure, it is decided to store the samples in dubious conditions, opting for wooden boxes that are eventually cheaper.

Using wooden boxes to transport and storage diamond samples generated a series of difficulties, common to many companies in the mining sector. Core Case developed new products for this task, which offered a new alternative to the market, solving these problems and bringing other benefits.

Main benefits of Core Case plastic cases:

  • Best cost benefit: Medium and long term use of Core Case products generates a better cost benefit compared to other materials, such as wood or metal.
  • Economical transport: Core Case plastic boxes are lighter than wood, which significantly reduces the cost during transport.
  • Sustainability and ESG: Does your business follow ESG strategies? Core Case products are made from 100% recycled materials.
  • Greater durability: Plastic has a longer shelf life than wooden boxes, especially if properly stored.
  • Efficient use of space: Core Case products considerably improve the organization of warehouses and storage locations, reducing the need of high investment in infrastructure Greater stacking capacity.
  • Resistance and no contamination risk: Core Case products present a lower risk of fire when compared to paperboard and wooden boxes. Plastic is an inert material that does not chemically react with other substances. Core Case boxes have holes for water drainage, preventing contamination with the box stacked below.

In the table below we can compare different types of records storage box available on the market.

Core Case’s principle is making everything with 100% recycled materials. Core Case’s purpose is preserving the planet through responsible exploration, promoting sustainability. 

We are committed to constantly improve our processes and develop innovative solutions to limit negative environmental impacts (whenever possible), and minimize the waste production that is harmful to the nature.

So, do as the biggest mining and drilling companies, use CORE CASE products and ensure your samples quality.

Mining industry, technological development and sustainability

In addition to the economic benefits of using suitable boxes to store geological drilling records from your mineral enterprise, we know that the mining industry is going through a key moment in the use of new technologies to reduce the environmental impacts generated in the industrial process.

By using plastic boxes produced with 100% recycled material that have greater durability than other materials, your enterprise contributes to the waste reduction disposal to the environment, investing in a material with an innovative proposal to the mineral sector.
