Geotech & Environmental

Our Geotech and environmental services have grown over the years to provide several different services as client demands have changed, we have diversified to meet these expectations.

Sonic Drilling

Sonic drilling is a technique that strongly reduces friction that makes penetrating for a large range of soils easier and faster. It is capable of retrieving many types of formation,gravels running sands etc The vibrations of the drill bit cause the soil to lose structure which changes its density. This way the soil & cuttings move in the sample barrel and up the drill string to help the tooling advance freely.

Sonic drilling does not necessarily require air or drilling mud while drilling. This makes sonic drilling the preferred method for geotechnical, geo-construction and environmental applications.

Diamond Core Drilling

Diamond core drilling utilizes an annular diamond-impregnated drill bit attached to the end of hollow drill rods to cut a cylindrical core of solid rock. Holes within the bit allow mud to be delivered to the cutting face. This provides three essential functions; lubrication, cooling, and removal of drill cuttings from the hole. Diamond drilling is much slower than reverse circulation (RC) drilling due to the hardness of the ground being drilled.

Our principal product is drill core, and we aim to achieve prompt delivery of this product to the customer every time. Our objective is to provide a reliable and first-rate service to the industry, making us leaders in drilling efficiency.

Our customers consist of various major exploration and mining companies, including L & M Coal seam and Gas, L & M Petroleum, Oceana Gold, Newmont Asia Pacific and other public-sector organizations.

Down hole surveys
By using inclination and deviation surveys using our FlexIT SmartTool camera, the location of the drill hole in 3D can be located extremely accurate. In addition to these surveys we also can supply a down hole camera for video footage.
