These are only a few of the many cutting edge blast hole drilling and other drilling services offered by Inyati Group throughout the African continent.

Reverse Circulation Services

Using this innovative method, test holes are drilled in order to evaluate the contents of the soil in particular geographical locations. This is done with the express intent of assessing whether the materials that are present are of any value and good enough quality to justify further mining and mineral operations. Inyati Group, for instance, offer exploration drills for diamonds, coal or any other valuable resources.

We make use of various techniques and systems depending on the specific geographical area, depth, purpose of drilling and deposits which includes Odex systems and hammers and tricone, to name a few. The process of reverse circulation will involve the returning of drill cuttings to the surface inside the drill rods. It will entail using a hammer that will drive a tungsten steel drill bit.

Aside from blast hole drilling, we also offer core drilling services. This method is used when a cylinder of material must be removed and also used in applications where the drill core bits should be preserved or where the more rapid drills can easily take place if fewer materials need to be removed. This remains one of the most popular methods in the construction for the drilling of pipes and manholes.

It is also a method that is extensively used in mineral exploration where coring might have to be up to thousands of feet in length. The sample recovery is then followed by geological examination in order to determine the percentage present as well as to identify the stratigraphic contact points. Mining houses use this information to determine viability studies of the sites.
