Heliportable Drilling involves transporting a disassembled drill rig, by helicopter, to a precise (often difficult to access) location.

Our ground crew then assemble the rig piece by piece until it's operational. Normal drilling can then be carried out in places few other drilling companies can reach!

WDA are working in conjunction with Remote Helicopters Australia. The two companies have developed a mutually beneficially relationship and are in a position to present a full package to the client. We work closely with our clients to ensure minimal environmental impact.

The relationship between chopper company and drilling company is of paramount importance and WDA work closely with Remote Helicopters Australia.


WDA Drilling currently operate BLY LF70 & ALTON MD600 rigs, both of which are fully heliportable and configured to also complete everyday surface exploration drilling work.
