Geotechnical Drilling

Geotechnical Drilling

Whether the scope calls for solid stem or hollow stem auger drilling in a field with SPTs, mud rotary drilling and grouting in SI/VWP installs on mine benches in the oil sands, sonic drilling and coring the overburden in Fort McMurray, or dual rotary drilling on a dyke or dam, we are confident we have the team and tools to deliver results for any geotechnical drilling program.

Our mud rotary, sonic, dual rotary, and auger rigs are all outfitted with SPT hammers – we also own an SPT analyzer to measure in-depth results.
