Field Operations Sample Recovery Support

Challenger can provide Clients with experienced field personnel to make sure that the quality control associated with the recovery, sampling and accurate labelling is of the highest standard.

A field sample lost, poorly labelled or un-orientated can be very costly to the client and lead to inaccurate or incorrect future analysis.

Quality control in this area includes-

  • Monitoring how the sample is collected.
  • Checking that the sample depths are as accurate as possible.
  • Making sure the depth labels are permanent and will not rub off or get lost.
  • Making sure any core is properly orientated.
  • An estimate is made of the quantity of lost core and where it is lost from. (On site core gamma can be used to help)
