  • Accurately measure borehole deviation and effectively use the data to plan projects safely and in compliance with auditing requirements
  • Record and visualize 3D data on drilling activity from ground level or underground site
  • Comply with quarrying legislation
    Avoid the potential risks and costs associated with blasting from deviated or un-surveyed boreholes


  • Optimizes blasting and engineering works by easily creating detailed maps of drilling activity
  • Reduces the need for large teams with entire drilling sites able to be measured and modeled in hours
  • Portable, lightweight, and hand-deployable, the system is designed to be used by a single operator
  • Checks drilled holes and produces in-the-field reports in minutes
  • On-site drilling operations become data-led with no guesswork and knowledge gaps


  • Designed for the rugged mining and quarrying environments – harsh weather, muddy holes, extreme temperatures, and ruggedized treatment
  • Have confidence that the system will last for years, giving accurate and reliable data in the toughest conditions
  • Capable of operating in areas of magnetic interference and in flooded holes


The Boretrak2 utilizes a miniature inertial measurement unit (IMU) which contains a triaxial accelerometer, magnetometer, and gyro. Prior to deployment, the probe is calibrated against a known orientation on a supplied jig. This establishes a starting reference azimuth for the gyro. The gyro provides the Boretrak2 with an accurate, live heading which is tracked as the probe is deployed along the borehole.


The incorporation of a gyro means that the Boretrak2 is not reliant on a magnetic compass or on physical rod alignment to establish the changing direction and orientation of the borehole.

The gyro frees up the Boretrak2 to be deployed using a variety of methods. Downhole, the probe can be lowered on a simple wireline. Horizontal and uphole the Boretrak2 can be supplied with a semi-rigid pushrod system, spooled out from a cable reel. Alternatively, traditional Boretrak rods can be used and an adaptor allows customized deployment devices to be fabricated for applications unique to your site.
