Surface Diamond Core Drilling
WDA's fleet of custom, compact diamond rigs is capable of drilling NQ, HQ and PQ core to depths of up to 1200 metres in any surface location.
Diamond drilling is a process of withdrawing a solid core of rock from various depths from known ore deposits and potential sites using a drill bit encrusted with industrial diamonds attached to a rotary drill via a drill rod. The core that is extracted is then analysed.
WDA Drilling Services specialises in difficult terrain, all seasons exploration diamond drilling from land based truck and track rigs to heliportable and multipurpose rigs.
WDA can tailor a solution for both shallow and deep hole drilling from small to large diameter core:
- NQ Coring to 1800 metres
- HQ Coring to 1100 metres
- PQ Coring to 800 metres
