Reliable, High Quality Core Samples are Essential
Gaining a precise picture of underground characteristics is vital information our customers need to find the best drilling targets, as well as to conduct effective environmental remediation programs. However, a large number of factors may impact the quality and reliability of core samples.
Exploration drilling takes place in remote, often saturated, and environmentally sensitive areas that can be difficult to reach. Environmental drilling programs are conducted under similar conditions, but may also be needed in urban areas, where knowledge of infrastructure and regulatory constraints becomes paramount.
