Auger Drill Rigs

Track Drills (Bombardiers)

chilliwack-drilling-track-drillsWith the Track Drills we can do hollow stem and standard auger work along with SPT and DCPT testing. These drills can be backed up with a portable decon unit which can come along with the service truck upon request.

Truck Drill

The truck is mounted with a double flashing light bar on the cab for safer roadside and highway drilling programs. Features this rig offers are an engineer – cab which has lights and heat for comfotable sample analysis and book work. Running water just outside the door with soap and towels. A large water tank is deck mounted along with a steam cleaner and a generator for power of 110 and 220V. We feature an on board wash water containment system which we can place into drums or dump in an area directed by your personnel.

ODEX

ODEX is an excellent option when unconsolidated formations are too dense or cobbly for Auger Drilling. ODEX is a down-hole air hammer system that is designed to advance casing during drilling. Once a desired depth is reached, the bit can be retrieved leaving the casing in place for sampling or installations.

When the bore-hole is complete, the casing is retrieved.

Pros:

  • Rapid removal of cuttings;
  • No use of drilling mud;
  • High penetration rate, especially in resistant rock formation (e.g. basalt);
  • Easy soil and groundwater sampling during drilling;
  • Possible to measure yield estimate at selected depth in the formation (e.g. filtration testing or pump testing).
  • Advantageous in unconsolidated formations with a high risk of caving (this is probably the most important feature).
