Core Drilling – Essential Component of Construction & Mining

Core Drilling Is an Essential Component of Construction and Mining The days of staking out a plot of land and immediately beginning construction are long gone. There are many issues with this approach, which is why it has been mostly abandoned in recent decades. Modern best practices dictate that a construction or mining company should conduct thorough testing and surveys on the land to determine the viability of a project. Core drilling is an essential component of these tests, as it can tell us a lot about a particular site and can save construction managers and building owners from many

Core Drilling – The Biggest Advantages of Core Drilling

The Biggest Advantage of Using Core Drilling The primary purpose of core drilling is to make perfectly cylindrical holes (or tubes) in rock or any other densely packed substrate. The utility goes beyond the ability to make holes, however, as almost any drill can do that. The biggest advantage of using core drilling over other methods is that the cores obtained from such drills are kept mostly intact, whereas other drills tend to pulverise or grind materials into the hole (which then adds debris removal to the labour load). In the article below, we will look at some of the

Borehole Cleaning – Tips for Borehole Maintanence

Why is Borehole Cleaning so Important? There is a misconception that boreholes do not need a lot of maintenance and that you should only have them serviced occasionally, if at all. This is far from true. Like any other piece of equipment or technology you own, borehole cleaning is required if you want to still be able to use it in a year or two. You can do most of the surface-level maintenance yourself, but there are also times when it would be better to call in professional help. In the article below, we will give you a few maintenance

Core Drilling V.S Impact Drilling – Core Drilling Mining Method

The Difference Between Core Drilling and Impact Drilling If you have a project that requires drilling, the kind of drill you use for the job can make a world of difference. The only thing more important would be the person behind the drill. On a busy construction site, it is not always easy or efficient to plan out a drill at a particular point, so the job usually gets assigned to whoever can get it done the quickest. This approach can work, but a mistake can be costly. It is, therefore, better to do the planning long before construction starts

Benefit of Borehole Drilling

Borehole Drilling Can Shield You Against Water Restrictions Water disruptions are becoming commonplace occurrences. This can happen due to the planned shutdown of critical water pipelines for maintenance or upgrades (and total infrastructure failures), reservoirs running empty due to drought, or due to government-mandated restrictions that limit water usage during certain specific times. Whether one can blame it all on poor planning and corruption on a municipal and provincial level is up for debate, but the fact remains that water disruptions are probably going to keep happening for the foreseeable future. Unfortunately, ordinary citizens still have to bear the brunt
