Core Processing

In 2010, Maxxam re-entered the core analysis market. Our 43,000 square foot Oil Sands Core Processing facility in North-East Calgary was designed for safe and efficient core movement from receiving to slabbing and frozen sample storage, and from photography to viewing and analysis.

Some highlights of the facility include:

  • Safe, indoor unloading of cores with a drive-in receiving area
  • Best-in-class viewing rooms with wall-to-wall roller benching
  • An abundance of natural light channeled through transom windows

In January 2013, Maxxam acquired Henderson & Associates – the leader in digital core logging analysis. Serving exploration and production companies in the Alberta oil sands, they have analysed an unprecedented 670,000 metres of core since 2009 and our experienced team of geoscientists are focused on helping our clients succeed.

Maxxam is the leading provider of geological services for analysis and interpretation of oil sands core drilling projects.
