Core Lifter Assembly

The core lifter assembly includes three key parts that allow you to firmly grip the core sample so that it can be broken and brought to the surface.  The correct  gap between the core lifter, the core lifter case and the stop ring is essential– using the same supplier for all three parts is strongly recommended and will ensure optimal performance.   


Stop ring

This ring ensures that the core lifter stays in the core lifter case. It is easily inserted into the grooved space provided in the core lifter case.


Slotted core lifter

The inside of the core lifter is available in a slotted style, which is ideal for competent soil.

slotted and fluted (also known as broached), to ensure a good grip regardless of the ground conditions. A core lifter that is slotted is good for competent soil whereas a fluted core lifter provides better recovery in fractured ground.


Broached core lifter

The core lifter can be purchased in a broached style (also known as fluted), which provides better recovery in fractured ground.


Diamond broached core lifter

Diamond coated core lifter offers superior lifespan and durability. This type of core lifter provides better gripping capabilities.


Core lifter case

The core lifter case is essential when it is time to break the core sample. Its tapered interior prevents the core lifter from moving and allows it to keep its grip on the core sample.

We are happy to announce that as of August 2, 2021, all Canadian Fordia offices will be making drill rigs available to their customers. In an earlier blog this year, we announced that drill rigs would be available for sale in the USA and that proved to be successful, so Canada will now join the USA in adding drill rigs to their portfolio of drilling equipment for the mineral exploration industry.

The mineral exploration industry has seen a lot of change in the last few years. One of the most common challenges is finding employees. Between the cyclic nature of the industry and the recent pandemic, many experienced drillers have left and replacing them has been difficult for many companies.

At the beginning of the year, we decided to update our popular eGuides so our customers would have the latest and greatest information. We started with our most popular guide on choosing the right core bit and are now in the process of taking each guide and updating its information to represent the many changes that have occurred over the last few years.

Customer service is our priority.
