coring fluid

1. n. [Drilling Fluids]
A specially designed fluid that is used for cutting cores with a core barrel and core bit. Sometimes the fluid used is the drilling mud, but if cores are for special studies, the coring fluid must be carefully designed to avoid damaging or altering the rock sample, such as a bland coring fluid.
