Drilling for Silica Deposits
Malcolm Drilling was contracted to collect sonic drilling samples at a potential mine site for Silica Deposits. Drilling with sonic technology is much faster and involves a much lower level of vibration and noise disturbance than any other type of drilling. Unlike conventional drilling techniques, this technique can easily adapt to a wide variety of soil and rock types with minimal tooling changes.
Our contract requested that full recovery samples be taken from twenty sites across a five square mile area. Samples extended to a maximum depth of 150 feet. The average recovery rate of each sample was greater than 95%. As a result of Malcolm’s crew’s safe and injury-free work, the client’s schedule was met ahead of time.
