Drill Methods and Tooling Options:

Alaska is a pretty big State with quite the variety of subsurface geology. For that reason, we field a wide range of downhole tooling and sampling equipment to ensure our Clients get the information they need in the most efficient way possible. Here are the more common drilling and sampling methods we use:

- Hollow Stem Augers (2 1/4" ID, 3 1/4" ID, 4 1/4" ID, 6 1/4" ID, 8 1/4" ID, 10 1/4" ID)

- Solid Flight Augers

- Split Spoons (SPT driven with a 140# hammer and NPT driven with a 340# hammer)

- Air Rotary Tools (standard down-hole hammers, casing advancing systems)

- Direct Push Tooling (MC5, MC7, DT35, DT45)

- CME Continuous Core System (for 3 1/4" and 4 1/4" hollow stem augers)

- Conventional and Wireline Diamond Coring (AQ, BQ, NQ, NQ3, HQ, HQ3)
