Geodrill Limited is a leading West African based exploration drilling company operating in Ghana, Burkina Faso, Niger, Guinea and Cote d'Ivoire. The Company was started by the current CEO Dave Harper in 1998 with one rig and one contract.
In 2012, Geodrill operates a fleet of 37 drill rigs and provides reverse circulation (RC), diamond core (Core), and air-core (AC) drilling services to a number of well known exploration, intermediate and mining companies such as Newmont Mining Corp, Perseus Mining, Keegan Resources, Ampella Mining, Gryphon Minerals and Azumah Resources.
An experienced workforce and management team coupled with a modern well-maintained fleet of rigs and support equipment have contributed to Geodrill’s reputation of being a result driven and customer focused drilling company, which strives to achieve greater depths and provide better quality samples, safely, and in an environmentally conscious manner.
Geodrill operates a modern, state of the art workshop and 10-acre supply base near Kumasi, Ghana, to provide rig repair and equipment/supply/storage, admin and training center.
The proceeds from a highly successful IPO in December 2010 have provided financial strength and flexibility for Geodrill to execute its long-term strategy, including adding more drill rigs and growing its current client base while continuing to asses expansion opportunities throughout West Africa and other jurisdictions in Africa.
Geodrill is committed to being socially responsible through its participation and donations to various charitable and community initiatives. The Company places particular emphasis on contributing to positive changes in the communities in which it operates. Management believes that this core value embraced by the Geodrill corporate culture benefits the Company, its employees, the communities in which it operates and the environment as a whole
