The Costs Involved in Borehole Drilling in South Africa

While a borehole is definitely an investment, there are costs that need to be taken into account before the decision to start borehole drilling is reached. Arming yourself with all the info you’ll need regarding costs and other logistics will ensure that you aren’t presented with any unpleasant surprises. You will learn that the costs associated with borehole and blast hole drilling will largely depend on the geology of the site that will be drilled, as well as on the borehole survey.

While it’s expected that the easiest drilling will be in areas of loose and soft geologies, the opposite tends to be true in this instance. As it happens one of the main challenges with drilling is actually keeping the borehole open during the drilling process. This makes it even more difficult to achieve if the hole keeps collapsing due to the geology of the site being unstable and loose.

Many methods are employed to combat this from occurring, including the use of temporary steel casing and drilling additives, among other technological solutions. All of these factors will be reflected in the cost of the borehole.
