a. GEEC is equipped with three towable “Edeco” type cable /percussion drilling rigs, each with full accessory set, capable of drilling through the soil and conducting SPT’s at every ½ to 1 metre, in semi to cohesive soils. Shelby or U100 tubes shall be utilised to obtain undisturbed samples. Ideally undisturbed sampling shall occur at 1.5 metre intervals where possible.
b. GEEC is equipped with a rotary drilling rig with full accessory set. Upon reaching the rock head, drilling is conducted using this rig with a double tube 1.5 metre core barrel and a core run. The maximum core run shall be 1.5m but in the event that less than 90% core recovery occurs then the next run shall be limited to 0.75m.
c. GEEC deploy a Nordmeyer wire line coring system capable also of conducting cable/percussion drilling in soils, aboard the hydraulically controlled 4 legged jack up pontoons. These pontoons provide drilling capability in water depths from1m to 35m. GEEC has two such pantoons.
