Diamond Core Drilling and Mineral Exploration Services

CORE DRILLING

Godbe Drilling LLC and Perforaciones Godbe de Mexico have been providing safe, professional, cost-effective mineral exploration diamond core drilling to the mining industry for over 45 years. Godbe specializes in the recovery of core, regardless of formation, or location. We have core drilled well over 1 million feet from grassroots exploration projects, to ore body definition, and large diameter metallurgical coring on existing mine properties. We are based out of Montrose, Colorado, with our Field Headquarters located in Willcox, Arizona. We have drilled countless projects throughout the Western United States. We have all-terrain track-mount, skid-mount, and truck-mounted core drills. Our drills are completely heli-portable, and can be broken down and flown via helicopter to the most remote of locations. We have completed numerous diamond core drill programs in Colorado, Arizona, Utah, New Mexico, Montana, Wyoming, Texas, Nevada, Idaho, California, Alaska, and Nevada. We recently built a small but powerful underground drill that is capable of drilling in any direction from the smallest of drill stations. From the most remote mountain peaks to the barren desert, surface to underground, Godbe Drilling has rigs and crews for the most difficult of projects and drill hole locations.  Godbe drilling also specializes in Dam stabilization core drilling. We are confident that our safety, production, pricing, and core recovery cannot be touched in the industry.

CORE RECOVERY

Helping our clients to find and define ore bodies for over 45 years. Godbe Drilling LLC and Perforaciones Godbe de Mexico specialize in the recovery of core regardless of formation or location. With 45 plus years in the industry, we have developed methods to recover the most fragile and brittle of core samples. The recovery of core samples in the most difficult formations requires the correct drilling methods. 

DIRECTIONAL DRILLING

Godbe Drilling has done many mother hole directional wedge drilling projects. This method enables multiple holes to be drilled from one drill hole collar. A vertical hole is often drilled into the ore body. Wedges are set above the formation and multiple directional holes are drilled at different angles into the ore body. Wedges can be set at different depths and directions to maximize ore body definition .This method eliminates the need to re-drill the often non mineralized formation above the mineralized zone.

MINERAL EXPLORATION

Godbe Drilling has meticulously maintained equipment, operated by highly experienced drilling professionals. Every generation of the Godbe family has been associated with the mining industry since the 1800’s. We understand the need for a professional, cost-effective core drilling contractor in the mining industry.
