What to look for when choosing a core drilling company

By | Article, Company News, Core Drilling, Helicopter Portable, Services, Why Choose Godbe Drilling? | No Comments

godbe_logo_75-1If your project requires mineral exploration diamond core drilling, you may be tasked with choosing a core drilling contractor so you can have the information you need to know how to continue with a mining operation or project. Choosing a core drilling contractor to drill for core samples used for chemical assay or determination of structural, petrologic, In situ leaching, and metalurgical rock studies requires careful consideration.

When you count on your contractor to furnish labor, technical assistance, tools, and equipment necessary to the task, you need to ask several questions of potential core drilling contractor to ensure maximum value for your mineral exploration investment. You want to be confident that your contractor understands work orders related to worksite locations, borehole locations, landowners, and any specialized directives associated with the project. Here are some questions to get answers to when you are evaluating potential core drilling contractors.

Can Your Core Recovery Specialists Deliver All Equipment to the Work Site?

Some worksites are so remotely located that roads have to be established to them, and when a project is over, reclamation work must be done to the site. When evaluating core recovery specialists, understand access requirements thoroughly, and discuss how equipment will be delivered to the worksite. In some cases, skid-mounted equipment will need to be delivered to the site by helicopter. Do your candidate core recovery specialists have experience in all methods of delivery of equipment and crews to worksites? Do they offer drill site reclamation for completed projects and in cases of drill hole abandonment? Are they experienced in projects in different types of terrain?

Can They Handle Task Modifications?

Due to the nature of some mineral exploration projects, sometimes tasks have to be modified during the course of the work. Boreholes may have to be relocated within certain limits, or the depth of a borehole may need to be increased or decreased. Perhaps the initial angle of drilling ends up requiring modification. Ensure that the core recovery specialists you’re considering understand the possibility of task modifications, and have the equipment and drilling team expertise to carry out these modifications. They should also be able to provide equipment that is maneuverable in tight worksite situations to make coping with task modifications easier, and should have experience in underground and surface drilling.

Do They Have an Outstanding Safety Program?

Only consider core recovery specialists with outstanding safety practices. Not only should the company adhere to all federal and state laws, local regulations, and directives by MSHA, OSHA, DOT, and the EPA, they should have strong company safety policies and meet your client safety policies as well. Excellent communication between you and your contractor foreman is necessary so that everyone understands safety hazards. In addition, ensure that contractor personnel are familiar with your safety standards and all site workers have completed all appropriate safety training before work begins. Your core recovery specialist’s safety program should cover client notification of changes in equipment or personnel, electrical safety, incident reporting, vehicle safety, and safety at heights or in confined spaces.

Are They Experienced Enough to Meet Your High Standards?

There is simply no substitute for experience in the core recovery industry. All candidate core recovery specialists should have experienced, field-proven foremen and crews supported by companies with a reputation for fulfilling client needs. Godbe Drilling LLC has some of the most experienced crews in the drilling industry, with driller foremen and general foremen who have supervised multiple rig jobs and participated in projects with a wide range of requirements.
