PERTH, WESTERN AUSTRALIA — 12 February, 2014 — acQuire Technology Solutions Pty Ltd (acQuire), global specialists in Geoscientific Information Management (GIM), and Corescan Pty Ltd, (CorescanTM), a services company specialising in the scanning and analysis of drill core and rock chips, announce a technology partnership to integrate Corescan’s numerical and visual data products directly into acQuire’s GIM Solution.

Mineralogical maps and core photographs covering entire drill holes will be available directly through the acQuire GIM Solution via a high-performance link to Corescan’s CoreShedTM data repository.  The resulting solution from the newly formed partnership will provide customers with unmatched performance and flexibility, while optimising data quality and ensuring time spent in the shed is kept to an absolute minimum.

“Partnering with Corescan allows us to offer our customers an even more refined tool for data search discovery,” says Steve Mundell, Director Research at acQuire.  “We’ll work closely with Corescan to use data visualisation to bridge the gap for geographically dispersed Geoscientists who are accessing that data from around the world.”

The agreement also allows the parties to collaborate on the development of workflows that encompass real-time analysis of core at the drill site, through to the delivery and management of results and information streams into resource modelling and analysis software.

“We are excited to partner with acQuire to deliver our image based products seamlessly to the geologists desktop,” says Neil Goodey, Managing Director Corescan.  “Binding traditional numerical assays with mineralogical maps and images has been our goal for many years and we are excited that the relationship with acQuire makes this a reality.”

Corescan and acQuire will be displaying a first release of this technology integration at this year’s Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) conference held 2 March to 5 March 2014 in Toronto, Ontario.
