Exploration Drilling

Looking to explore your concession? Our team at Brewster Well Drilling works alongside various mining companies to provide production and exploration drilling. Canada is home to many areas with untapped resources. Our experienced engineers and technicians create custom solutions to fit your specific job. Our team has access to top-of-the-line equipment and drilling tools to access any remote areas in Canada and abroad.

When researching an area, there is a fine line between getting an adequate sample to test for different things and keeping the surrounding areas undisturbed. Our team uses the right tools to tackle any areas with unique complications. With our equipment, we can obtain samples that are not contaminated and can be used in order to further understand what lies beneath the surface.

The Brewster Well Drilling team works with our clients to make sure the job is handled with accuracy and efficiency. Our main services provided are listed below.

  • Rotary Air-Blast Drilling – Rotary-percussion air drilling is the simplest and most economical solution for taking the first steps in mining exploration. Performed using a triblade or down-the-hole hammer of varying diameters between 3 and 6.0 inches, samples exit along the borehole walls. This technique is used to get an overall idea of the mining potential for low-cost sites. However, in order to obtain contamination-free samples, we must rely on reverse circulation or diamond core drilling techniques.
  • Reverse Circulation Drilling (RC) – Reverse circulation drilling (RC) is a drilling technique that allows samples to be retrieved with minimal contamination. Drilling is typically done using a down-the-hole, tricone, or triblade bit. The samples travel through rods to a sample splitter at surface, avoiding all contact between the samples and the borehole wall. This quick execution technique is usually performed within a diameter of 150 mm and a depth that varies between 50 and 200 meters.
  • Diamond Core Drilling (DD) – Diamond core drilling is used in the mining industry to probe the contents of known deposits and potential mining sites. By removing a small diameter of rock from the deposit, geologists can analyze the core through chemical dosage and use the rock for petrographic, structural, and mineralogical studies.
  • Blast Hole / Production Drilling – This type of drilling consists of digging cavities within the rock walls in order to insert dynamite. Fast and efficient, this technique allows blasters to perform their work quickly with precision. Drilling is available in several diameters and depths according to the customer's needs.
  • Grade Control Drilling – Using reverse circulation drilling techniques and advanced sample splitting and recovery systems, our grade control drills can provide samples helpful in differentiating between ore and waste rock. Doing so will maximize the profitability of your mining operations.
