Quality sample drilling is the process of removing a small amount of material from an object to create a representative sample for inspection. Quality sampling can be used in many different industries, but mining companies most commonly use it.
Quality samples are important because they allow miners to assess the quality and quantity of minerals before investing time and money into extraction efforts. Quality sampling is also beneficial for determining product quality or determining which areas need more research and development. The following three tips will help you conduct high-quality samples:
1) Limit surface contamination – Miners should take care not to contaminate their drill core with unwanted elements like oil or dirt that could affect analysis results.
2) Be selective – Quality sampling requires the removal of only a tiny portion of the drill core so that future analysis can be conducted on it.
3) Quality control – Quality Drill Bits are designed to produce the highest quality samples with minimal effort.
Quality Sample Drilling is crucial because it helps determine whether or not a potential mine site will be profitable in the long term.
