Sample Drilling Using Diamond Core Bits

Sample Drilling Using Diamond Core Bits

Some types of geotechnical projects require obtaining core samples. Drillers have to use core drilling method to penetrate deep under the ground and obtain these samples. All samples obtained during the sample drilling process are marked properly to ensure accurate mineral test results. Special core bits made for geotechnical drilling are needed. The drilling requires supplying water at high pressure to flush out the cuttings and keep the drilling bits cool.

Mining projects cannot do without this drilling method. It helps mining companies obtain the core samples and figure out if the prospects are good for certain minerals. The drillers use diamond drill that has bort or carbons as cutting media. This type of drill is capable of drilling the hardest rocks. The drill equipment is capable of drilling the ground at an angle. This drilling technique is useful not only for the mining sites but also for the dam and foundation projects. There is 100% core recovery and accurate samples are obtained.
