OUR RIGS ARE A TRUE COMBINATION OF ROTARY DRILLING AND AUGER DRILLING RIGS, CAPABLE OF DRILLING TO DEPTHS OF 300 METERS. THEY ARE DESIGNED WITH FEATURES TO MAXIMIZE SPEED, EFFICIENCY AND SAFETY. THEY HAVE FULL 6M (20 FT) PIPE CAPACITY, WHICH MINIMIZES TRIP IN AND TRIP OUT, SAVING YOU TIME OVER THE OTHER GUYS.

Our wheeled flat water tank/deck trucks, which accompany the rigs, include conventional and all-wheel drive trucks with heated tanks and mounted pickers. These pickers allow for ease of material handling and increased safety. Our track water trucks have conventional heated water tanks with areas on each side for material storage and have a one ton electric crane for material handling convenience.

Each of our rigs is fully tooled and self-contained to efficiently handle auger drilling, rotary drilling, air drilling, mud drilling, SPT/Shelby Testing, Wireline Coring, Instrument Installations, and Grouting. Our equipment is designed and modified to to meet the challenging geotechnical drilling conditions, harsh climate and rugged terrain in the Western Canadian Region. We have all wheel drive rig and water truck available for difficult terrain, and tracked equipment for terrain that is too difficult or remote for AWD.
