Cable Percussion drilling

Cable Percussion drilling is a popular method for drilling boreholes. It offers a great deal of flexibility, as it can be used as a stand-alone piece of work or as a compliment to other drilling techniques being carried out on the same site.

Geocore have the capability to drill in 6, 8, 10 and 12” diameter holes going down to depths of over 30m. Using this technique disturbed and undisturbed samples can be obtained and logged.

All Geocore drilling rigs are transported to site by one of our 4×4 vehicles. This ensures that we can locate the rig on the most demanding terrain. Once on site, our rigs are operated by experienced engineers, backed-up with dedicated office staff to provide a professional, quality service.

With the drilling completed, a borehole can be installed with gas and/or groundwater monitoring well. We can tailor this installation to your specification. Having drilled the borehole and installed the monitoring equipment we can also carry out monitoring visits and reports,  at very competitive rates.
