RFID Drill Sampling Cost Saving Example

Mining and exploration companies can lose thousands of dollars per year on human and system sampling error.

Although some of it is recoverable through re-assay or geologist best guess in the modelling phase, it is still a sunk cost that could be reduced to zero with RayTrac™.

For example a low 2% sample error rate of 100,000 samples x $120 cost per sample (includes the drill cost per meter, company labour cost, transport cost and assay cost) = $240,000 total cost in error samples to the company. RayTrac™ can reduce this to zero.

Have you wondered how much automation can save on a project rather than how much it can cost?

RFID Sample Scanning

When you’re responsible for the chain of custody for mining samples, nothing makes the process of collecting, tagging and tracking samples as easy as AutoRun does.

We combine tracking software with RFID-tagged bags and handheld or fitted scanners to ensure that you can track the samples from mine site to assay lab in real time.

In built fallbacks mean that the field assistant is alerted if there are any samples missing, so they can fix the error before it happens.


AUTORUN are finalists in the WA Department of Mines, Work Health and Safety Excellence Awards 2021

AutoRun are excited to announce that we are finalists in the WA Department of Mines, Work Health and Safety Excellence Awards 2021, under the Safety Invention of the year category for our work in the JV of Ausdrill’s Rock Commander Reverse Circulation Drill Rig Automated Sampler.

We are hoping to be the winner of the award on the 22nd of October at the Optus Stadium at the awards ceremony.

In the meantime, if you would like more information on these automated drill rigs that use our home-grown RFID technology, please visit the AUTORUN or AUSDRILL website.
