Reverse Circulation Drilling

Main Content

Fast, Reliable, and uncontaminated samples

Reverse Circulation drilling is an innovative method for collecting reliable and consistent samples from rock formations. Utilizing dual-wall drill rods with a hollow inner tube, air pressure drives the piston hammer to push through tough terrain while simultaneously transporting material back up to the surface in one steady flow. As opposed to diamond drilling which produces core samples , this technique collects cuttings instead. With these specialized pieces of equipment at work, clients can have peace of mind knowing they’ll receive dependable data needed for successful exploration projects quickly and efficiently!

  • Reliable samples free of cross-contamination
  • High penetration rates at greater depths
  • Requires far less water than diamond drilling
