Cable Percussion

Cable Percussion (or Shell and Auger as it is commonly known) is a trusted and popular method of drilling/sampling/testing unconsolidated material.

Our rigs are towed to site using 4×4 vehicles and can drill to in excess of 50m in various casing diameters.

Equipped for standard in-situ sampling and testing, our rigs also have UT100 capability and we can provide casing compatible with UXO surveys.

Boreholes can be converted into gas and monitoring points, as well as soak-aways and water wells.

 Having Rotary capability in-house, we can provide cost effective Cable Percussion and Rotary follow on packages for our customers.
