Are Core Trays made from Recycled material any good? Reviews, Comparison & Lifetime Warranties


Spencer Dormer

Treading the unbeaten path can be tough, every Geo or Fieldie stamping through the bush or jungle know that.

You also know to keep pursuing because you believe in your cause.


That's where the Recycled Core Tray complete with the Lifetime Warranty was born.

You may be aware by now we are an upfront company, and have a mission to answer any question you ask of us, honestly.

However, good, bad or ugly it maybe for us. 

Mining on the Move into the Future

Earlier this year a Mid-Tier Mining Companies' Exploration Manager and Geological Superintendent visited our Perth office.

They had a mandate for us to help take them into the future of mining.

They were clear; they didn't want to get left behind with outdated, and old school methods.

Essentially they weren't willing to be another 'Kodak' story.

Contentious Topic

With all break-through technologies you'll always get people saying 'it'll never happen'.

History has silenced those unwilling to step outside the comfort zone.

Mankind has walked on the moon, Edison was ridiculed by 'experts' about the light bulb, and the Wright brothers were right!

Man on Moon

One of the biggest contentions of our day is the movement towards sustainable and environmentally friendly solutions in our mining supply chains. 

We've actively pursued this concept with our Discoverer Core Tray manufacturing.

There's been interesting reactions from the competition.

But that's ok, because we believe in pursuing the vision that is good for mankind, even if we are the underdogs

So we wanted to openly discuss this so that you know what it means for you, and so you are informed to make your own decision.

You may be in the class of sticking with a Virgin polymer, or you may be interested in looking at a sustainable, recycled option.

Either way, the choice is yours to make, regardless of this choice we do believe in keeping you informed.

What is the mining industry demanding?

Pretty much this is where is starts and ends.

Is there a thirst to make a change?

In talking with Celia Hayes, Environmental Specialist at South32, she states;

"I would change the world by removing all single-use plastics from the supply chain and “fast-track the wave around circular economy thinking by 20 years”.

That's a worthy goal from the futuristic thinker.

She's making revolutionary waves and the industry will have a lot to thank her for.

Virgin v Recycled Polymer

Westernex are one of the most well-known, respected and largest suppliers in the industry.

They have great team of people in Perth and also have strong beliefs in this area.

They made it public to you through their releases.

You can read the letter from John Wilder, Westernex Managing Director by clicking here.

As an aside, Curt Dormer is the Dynamics MD, you can email him on, video call him on Whatsapp or Call his mobile: 0439 800 220.

He'll be more than happy to talk to you anytime, because any customer is his highest priority. 

Further to this was this post, outlining why Impala Core Trays are only made of Virgin Polymer and they'd never use recycled polymer.

Finally, they published this post, which talks about recycled plastic not being suitable for making Core Trays.

Whilst we respect fully the decision of Westernex to stick with virgin polymer, as it's longstanding tradition...

...we wanted to go a little against the grain.

Environmental Geologist, Governments & Major Mining shareholders were asking us to do our bit in supporting their Corporate Social Responsibility.

We realize that sticking with Virgin maybe the right choice for you and we understand and sincerely respect that.

Here's what one longstanding customer had to say:

"There has been some speculation regarding the quality of the black recycled core trays and their durability. We have had absolutely no issues to date."

- Kaye Raureti | Geology Supervisor | Red River Resources Limited

Is Recycled Core Trays a viable option for me?

It could be, let's explore it.

You seem to us to be straight-shooters, that don't beat around the bush.

We are giving you our usual no BS approach.

All our Core Trays will be starting to transition to a Grey (not black) recycled polymer as of April 2020.

We've ensured the QC process is so strong we are giving everyone a LIFETIME WARRANTY. 

It's Zero Risk to you.

We trust this is a very simple, no BS way of answering all the claims in only 2 words.

No other Core Tray in the global market offer this ultimate peace of mind, virgin or otherwise!

We acknowledge the traditional recycled/regrind material are not suitable for some of the reasons outlined by Westernex.

Unfortunately what's been left out of the equation is the fact we are in a rapidly developing world where recycled material will be used in 70% of our plastic by 2025. (Gov Stipulation)

Recycled polymer is better and more advanced than it's ever been... we are no longer in 2019. 🚀 to the future!

If we had any doubts about this, considering there are over 10 million Discoverer Trays on the market, we'd be foolish to offer a Lifetime Warranty.

But we are so confident in our QC, we do.

We are not in the market to sell trays to every man and his dog.

We here to provide a worthy alternative, whilst seeking to do the right thing by your Corporate Social Responsibility requirements.

If we don't do this someone else will.

If it's not important to you, please do not worry, you'll have other options for now.

Watch the performance! [Video]

Little challenge: If you don't use Discoverer on site at the moment try this little experiment and see how you go.

This may debunk the 'very brittle' theory.

If things turn bad act responsibly and stop, otherwise have some fun!

We trust this helps you to choose, and the power of choice has been returned to you with this honest, transparent assessment. 

As always, we believe it’s about giving you the best value for money products, not the cheapest conceivable.


P.S. Have you ever had a drill program where you've had unused excess product?

Take advantage of our Lifetime Returns policy.

We'll happily take back your unused products, no time limits.

How many times have we heard that you've run out of product because your drill program got extended last minute?

Now it's easy, order as much as you like, keep your drill program going no sweat and return the unused when your done.

Who looks like they are in control onsite now?

Power to you.
