Benefits Of Blast Hole Drilling

Blast hole drilling is one of the methods used in mining( exploration). This method involves drilling a hole in the rock’s surface and then packing it with explosive materials, which trigger the rocks’ explosion. After the explosive materials are packed, they are then activated by a detonator, which help to create enough drills for sampling. Below are some of the benefits of blast hole drilling over other drilling and exploration methods. Optimized Blasting With this kind of drilling, many technology techniques go in hand with the method, which results in an optimized blasting. This technology includes a technology that can

Ultimate Guide To Air-Core Drilling

One of the most preferred drilling and exploration method is aircore drilling for its accuracy in deep exploration ability. This approach provides a good choice to heavy drilling machinery as it works in ensuring an optimal drilling comfort and sample collection. When choosing a drill type, it is wise to consider some economic factors and their sample evaluation approach. The article is designed to provide you with some basics on the air core drilling approach. Its benefits in both exploration and sample evaluation, as usual, mine life and economic value, play a major role in determining the mining profit. All

Guide To Quality Sample Drilling

To ensure the stability of the wall during Quality Sample Drilling and the bottom of the hole, where necessary, a coil of coating pipes or a fluid generally consisting of a mixture of water and bentonite (in a percentage of 3-5%) is used. Bentonite is a very plastic volcanic clay. The bentonite mud is characterized by a volume weight slightly higher than that of water and by thixotropy, or by a very high viscosity in a state of rest and much less in the state of motion. These characteristics make the bentonitl mud particularly suitable not only for supporting the
