Air Core Drilling
Featuring unrivalled innovation and productivity, the Bostech Air Core system sets the benchmark in our industry and has been developed over many years to maximise productivity, reliability and the overall improvement of sample quality.
At Bostech we’re committed to Zero Impact Drilling, we avoid any noticeable or lasting side effects or damage to the immediate environment.
Our air core system is extremely versatile, and can drill holes in ground from Paleo channel, sand and light clays through to sedimentary and basement clay. It can also penetrate hard bands to give small core samples in competent geology.
Hole sizes are generally 85mm-87mm in diameter, produced with rapid penetration rates, which makes it an extremely cost effective drilling method. Air core drilling is a much cheaper alternative when compared to RC drilling, which means more metres and ground can be covered, for less cost.
Our lightweight aircore rigs are highly manoeuvreable, have minimal impact on the environment and require much less surface preparation to allow the rig to access remote areas.
Rotary Air Blast Drilling
This traditional drilling method is not as commonly used today, mainly because it’s less accurate than AirCore drilling - due to the use of a single tube.
As a result, samples have a greater chance of becoming contaminated, due to contact with the geology of the drill hole. This differs to air core drilling, where the sample is isolated from the geology by the sample tube.
Slimline Reverse Circulation Drilling
Compact and powerful, our slimline rigs are easy to manoeuvre which makes them ideal for lower cost reverse cycle drilling in pits for grade control and sterilisation.
Combined with various face-sampling hammers, we have the capabilities to sample basement during an RAB/Aircore program, without the need to change equipment or mobilise extra crews.
