Abstract:
A spearing device (10) for collection of a sample of bulk material and a method of collecting a sample. The spearing device (10) comprises a tubular spear portion (11) for receiving a sample of material through an open end (14). The tubular spear portion (11) comprises two longitudinal elements (17) adapted to be arranged together in an assembled condition to define the tubular portion. A retaining means (19) is adapted to be connected to the tubular spear portion (11) for releasably retaining the two longitudinal elements (17) together in the assembled condition defining the tubular spear portion. The tubular spear portion (11) is adapted to be selectively opened to expose the collected sample material for retrieval. The tubular spear portion (11) is opened through movement of the two longitudinal elements (17) relative to each other. The two longitudinal elements (17) may be moved relative to each other by moving one axially relative to the other or by moving them apart.
