Drilling is one of the most important of all mineral exploration procedures. In almost all cases, it is drilling that locates and defines economic mineralization, and drilling provides the ultimate test for all the ideas, theories and predictions that are generated in the preceding prospect generation and target generation phases of the exploration process.
There are a large number of different drilling techniques. Instead on the three basic types which are most commonly used in mineral exploration. In order of increasing cost, these are auger drilling, rotary percussion drilling and diamond drilling.
Our crews have shown a remarkable ability to drill into, core, and recover our clients’ minerals from difficult formation geologies. Whether that be with dual wall R/C drilling methods or conventional air or mud rotary coring methods, we do it all. The most recent minerals we’ve been involved with are:
