Sonic

We offer a variety of sonic drilling equipment including truck or track mounted sonic drills.  Sonic is primarily utilized for characterization of waste rock and tailings piles as well as installation of piezometers, monitoring wells, and remediation wells.

Grade Control

We can conduct pit sampling using rotary or reverse circulation, surveying, or sampling of drill hole cuttings @ 1.2 meter spacings.

Service Holes

For mines around the world, we assist with the completion of steerable and casing installation as well as pilot holes that are drilled to target or reamed to completed size.

Pressure Grouting & Grout Curtains

We can install pressure grouting for ground water control or to prevent water influx from groundwater.   We also install smart cables for rock mechanic studies and monitoring.  In addition, we can install other ground control monitoring instruments.

Probe Holes (Cover Drilling)

Drilling in advance of production mining, ground investigation prior to mining, or drilling ahead of development to predict groundwater or poor ground conditions.

Centerline Drilling

This ensures development has ideal breakthrough with adjoining excavation and that drifts and raise development breakthrough are accurate.

Reverse Circulation

R/C drilling can be an cost-effective way to prove or expand reserves in active mining projects.  Capabilities include deep-hole projects, large diameter casing advance, and angle capable up to 45 degrees.

Smart Cables

Smart cables are used for rock mechanic studies and monitoring.  We can install and grout in this and other ground control monitoring instruments.
