With over 400 successful formate applications behind us, we’ll ensure cesium formate optimizes your well construction operations.

Assured supply

We own and operate the Tanco mine in Manitoba, Canada. Here we extract pollucite ore, the base for cesium formate fluids. The Tanco mine contains the majority of the known global reserves of this rare mineral, so we are assured of stock for decades to come. Furthermore, as part of Sinomine, we have access to additional reserves and mining expertise to complement our own resources.
