Mineral Exploration

Accomplish your drill targets, even with geological or environmental obstacles.

The depth of an ore body can be difficult to reach and define, but IDS is highly skilled when it comes to mineral exploration projects. Our teams develop steered pre-collars to align the drill hole to a target before coring commences, enabling us to intersect target areas at a desired location and trajectory. This eliminates missed targets and the associated costs of drilling additional holes and wedging.

IDS is skilled in creating multiple target intersections from one pilot hole, which reduces drill site pad construction reaching multiple targets from one location. Mineral exploration requires sensitivity to environmental constraints. It can be difficult to reach a target from a drill pad location, from uncooperative geological formations or surface terrain. However, Accu-dril™ can drill multiple holes from a single pilot hole when environmental regulations dictate a minimum amount of drill site pad locations.
