REVERSE CIRCULATION DRILLING
The Reverse Circulation rig fleet consists of late model, high capacity Schramm T685 drill rigs fully compliant to Australian standards. The rigs and support equipment are designed and maintained for the toughest and most remote drilling projects. Both all-wheel drive truck and track mounted units are available.
McKay Drilling has introduced two industry-first Schramm T685i drilling rigs to grow the Reverse Circulation division. The rigs feature a portable digital control panel that allows the Driller to operate up to eight metres away from the rig. The introduction of these rigs is a significant step forward for the development of safety and control features in the reverse circulation drilling method.
McKay Drilling specialises in all aspects of Reverse Circulation drilling including but not limited to: Remote Exploration, Resource Definition, Grade Control, Bulk Sampling, Geotechnical and Deep Hole Target Sensitive Reverse Circulation to depths of 700m.
