[On Corewise Automatic Core Saws] Great core saws. The areas for me that set it apart from its competitors are the location of the control panel which is in a safer location and visible for the user and away from water run off, the magnetic core carrier system, a lot thicker gauge metal on the panels (lost count how many other saws prior just turned to rust even when thoroughly cleaned) and the ability to set the speed for different core types. If there is a more capable and safer saw on the market I am definitely yet to find it.

Managing Director, Great Boulder Resources Ltd

[On Discoverer Recycled Plastic Core Trays] This is a great initiative. We're keen to use recycled and biodegradable consumables wherever possible. We've seen cattle die from eating plastic exploration bags - just one unintended consequence to the local environment that we'd obviously prefer to avoid.

Craig Brown
CEO, ECR Minerals PLC

Our drill team and core logging team are very pleased with the recycled plastic Discoverer Core Trays.

Perilya Broken Hill Ltd

I can safely tell you that in my 10 years experience the Discoverer Core Tray is the best tray I've used by a fair margin... These trays have never shown any sign of warping and have always maintained the exact same shape as received. And considering the temp in summer in Broken Hill can reach 40 plus degrees for 2 straight weeks and that most of the time the trays are in direct sunlight with no shade, I would recommend them to anyone.

The medium abrasive (Core Saw) Blades offer the best value as they will cut the hard core we have and don’t wear as quickly. We generally get 350 meters plus from these blades, they seem to have a thicker matrix than the [previous] blades [we were using] & definitely last longer.

We have recently swapped to the Discoverer Core Boats [also known as Core Guides] and have had a very positive outcome with the boat lasting a lot longer than the previous ones we had been using. I have now been using the Discoverer Core Boat for just over 4 weeks and it still looks like new, with no damage at all. Previously I was buying new boats every 4 weeks!
