Are there any problems with old drill holes leaking water into the mine? Do the open drill holes cause any problems during mining or blasting? Is it incuring too many costs to keep the drill rig waiting while the concreting? These problems are now solved.
Palsatech and partners have developed a new and unique method of plugging the old drill holes. The idea is a patented drill hole plug, which can be installed without a drill rig. After installation of the plug (max. 100m depth) the hole can be concreted to the desired depth.
We use a special concrete which clogs the rock crevices and open drill holes impermeably, and it dries quickly. The consumption is more manageable - you don't pay extra for truckloads of concrete.

Since 2016, Palsatech Ltd. has been designing and implementing a new generation of drill core logging table modules. The design of the tables is the company's own production, manufacturing is partly implemented under subcontracting.
"I have worked in the core logging processing almost 20 years, and several times I've been thinking about what partitions should be developed that it would serve to the users in the best possible way. Safety and health runs the idea of the center, because work ergonomics is major risk of sample process. In addition, we wanted notice flexible use of workspace , saving space and making work more efficient "says Mika Alasuutari, Managing Director of the company.
The company has implemented several projects and is currently ongoing large units for LKAB's mines in Malmberg and Kiruna in Sweden.

Palsatech and TerraCore have joined forces in order to offer the possibility to study core samples with modern hyperspectral imaging techniques.
‘We discussed with TerraCore and together decided to co-operate as this is a clear win-win situation for all. Meaning the two companies and all our clients. We already have a significant amount of drillcore in our storage facilities, which then can be easily transferred to our research facility to perform the imaging. First projects have already been done and hopefully there is a lot more to come. The technique has been known for a while and finally we have it available in Kemi. We think this will be a part of standard drill core logging procedure in the future’, says Hannu Ahola, Chief Geologist of Palsatech.
