DrillSmith specialises in geotechnical investigation, drilling of earth stakes, environmental drilling and project management.
Recent projects involved geotechnical drilling at Weipa (Far North Queensland), geotechnical investigations in Central Arhnem Land and Croker Island (off the coast of the Norther Territory).
Our rig is especially suited to restricted access sites where conventional drill rigs cant fit.
Typical geotechnical projects are associated with telecommunication towers, tanks, etc. Earth stake drilling is associated with telecommunications and sub-stations infrastructure.
