WDA Drilling Rigs
WDA operates a fleet of purpose built surface drill rigs capable of reaching depths of up to 1200 meters. The rigs are lightweight, modular and easily maneuverable, with wheel base, rubber tracked and steel tracked models suitable for the most challenging locations. Rigs and support equipment have undergone extensive safety and production focused overhauls in order to suit drilling requirements in almost any terrain to provide the best sampling service possible. Drilling can be completed in areas with little to no road access by helicopter lift deployment and muddy, boggy terrain and salt lakes with morookas, pontoons and all terrain vehicles. We continue to invest in our rig fleet, enhancing the quality and versatility to ensure we meet our client’s needs.
