These Techniques include;

  • Hollow Stem Auger Drilling in varying diameters
  • Continuous Flight Augering
  • Open Hole Drilling through solid formations with DTH, full hole diamond or tricone roller bits
  • Conventional Rock Coring using lined or open barrels
  • Conventional drift casing or ODEX/ROBIT in varying diameters

These techniques can all be utilized in conjunction with the following flush systems;

  • Water Flush using settling tanks and recirculated water
  • Mud/Polymer flush in unconsolidated/unstable ground
  • Air/Air mist
  • Foam

Use of re-circulated water flushing techniques enables us to contain the flushing media and any contaminant which may be present in the groundwater, therefore the pollutant can be disposed of and not spread on site during drilling operations.

All of the above enable our Drilling Crews to successfully install the best quality monitoring/remediation wells using top grade well materials supplied from Cape Site Services stores.
