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 you Need to Know About Air-Core Drilling and Benefits
How it Works
It will help if we first try to understand why we need air core drilling in our mine or exploration process by assessing its operation and sample evaluation. The whole process uses compressed air into rocks, and due to pressure, different rocks crack, thus providing an easy drill bit access to new ore depths. When comparing air drilling, it is easy to associate it with percussion or diamond drilling, but the truth is it stands for itself. If your mine site is experiencing hard and impermeable rocks, its high time you incorporate air drilling for faster extraction and sample collections.
Benefits of Air drilling Approach
Accurate Sample collection
Compared with other drilling methods in sample collection and their effectiveness on the whole sample collection, air drilling provides an accurate representation of the whole mining zone. This is possible because it has the ability to reach deeper depths, thus providing all the mining approach and better reinforcement on each level. A complete guide on how the ground and crust rocks are arranged and their line of weakness plays a major role in reinforcement and other mining methods.
No Hole Casing Required
With air and compressed type in aircore drilling, there is no need for hole casing as the pressure inside balance with the atmospheric pressure making it stable and strong. Other drilling approaches require extra support for proper drilling, which in turn costs a lot of cash in my planning and sample collections. As a business and business law, it is all about minimizing spending and maximizing income. If by any chance, you have a way to cut all of your spendings and work on your production, then you are in business. Air-core drilling allows you to work with your budget by reducing unnecessary spending while maximizing results.
