Kimberlite Bulk Sampling
Hydraulic Airlift technology is used to minimize diamond breakage on large diameter bulk sample holes drilled deep through Arctic lakes in Canada.
Engineered custom built, high performance drilling rigs with mineral separation systems used through the Canadian diamond play to bulk sample Kimberlites to depths of 500 meters and to diameters of 1 meter. Computer monitored systems were used to log drilling and sampling operations by satellite. Complete project management included building the ice islands to work from, engineering and mobilizing all equipment and managing the projects.
