About Godbe Drilling LLC

About Godbe Drilling

Please let me take this opportunity to introduce Godbe Drilling LLC, family owned core drilling companies (established in 1994) with the management and field experience of a 40 year veteran. The Godbe name is synonymous with the mining industry- every Godbe generation has been represented in the mining industry since the 1870’s.

As you may recall, I managed a major drilling company for over twenty-two years, and owned the company for a ten year period between 1982 and 1992. I sold that company in 1992, and was retained as Marketing Manager during the buyout period. For a long time now I’ve seen and worked the ins and outs of very successful core drilling companies.

Numerous clients from past drilling programs persuaded me to re-enter the drilling business. There is a continuing need in the mining industry for a quality drilling company, dedicated to the customer’s personalized needs, with knowledgeable and courteous service.

Godbe Drilling LLC is a Colorado Limited Liability Company qualified to do business in the United States and Mexico. Godbe Drilling maintains licenses issued by the Arizona Registrar of Contractors and the Arizona Department of Water Resources, as well as business and professional licenses which include the contracting requirements for the state of Nevada and most of the western states. We are also very pleased to mention that Godbe Drilling LLC has one of the best Safety Programs in the industry.

The company specializes in surface, underground and helicopter-supported exploratory diamond core drilling. Godbe Drilling is operating (10) core drills including LF70’s, CS1000’s, Maxi drills, LY38’s, LY44’s, and small but extremely powerful underground drills that can be powered with air electricity or diesel (with scrubber). Recently a brand new LY LF-70 was purchased and put immediately to work on a major core drilling project in southern Arizona.

A contractor’s key ingredient for a successful drilling project is competent, well supported field personnel who constantly strive to fulfill the needs of the client. Godbe Drilling, LLC is extremely proud to have some of the most experienced crews in the drilling industry. Godbe Drilling’s Formen are experienced and field proven- some have worked for me for over thirty years in the capacity of driller foreman and general foreman, supervising multiple rig jobs (utilizing up to five rigs on projects lasting in excess of four years in duration). Numerous holes were core drilled to depths greater than 5,000 feet on some of these projects.

My goal is to provide a quality and cost effective drilling service to the mining industry. I am committed to providing reliable drilling equipment operated by professional, safe, and highly experienced drilling personnel.

Thank you for the opportunity to present a brief description of my company. Please add Godbe Drilling LLC to your bid list.
