Deep Directional Drilling

Geodrill specializes in Deep Directional Drilling using DHM (Down Hole Motor) and wedging methods.

Deep Directional Drilling is used to:

    • Control deviation so target is achieved
    • Intersect targets below inaccessible locations
    • Alter course of a drill hole to intersect target
    • Allow multiple target intersections by drilling branch holes off the mother hole

Geodrill has completed a number of DDD programs for senior mining operating companies in Africa. Such programs involve planning and drilling multiple branches holes which often taken months to complete and resulted in significant savings compared to conventional DD. Once a deep directional drill program is carefully planned, the need for wedges is significantly reduced. The Company uses specialized software to plan and navigate DDD holes.

The Company has also completed a number of Paste Fill and Ore Pass construction programs using DDD methods.
