Successful core drilling projects are always the primary focus of diamond core drilling companies. Godbe Drilling, LLC specializes in the recovery of core, regardless of formation or location. We have core drilled well over one million feet throughout the western United States, including locations in Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, Utah, and Wyoming.
Our heli-portable all-terrain, track-mount, skid-mount, and truck-mounted core drills can easy make it into the most remote mountain peaks and deserts. Thanks to our specialized equipment and decades of experience, we can tackle jobs of any size, including grassroots exploration projects, ore body definitions, and large-diameter metallurgical coring on existing mine properties. Your project needs will always remain our top priority, and we know our core drilling services can’t be beat in terms of production and pricing.
The recovery of core samples in difficult formations requires the correct drilling methods. Through over 45 years of industry experience, Godbe Drilling LLC and Perforaciones Godbe de Mexico has developed specialized methods to recover even the most fragile and brittle core samples regardless of formation or location.
Directional drilling enables contractors to drill multiple holes from one drill hole collar. This effectively eliminates the need to re-drill non-mineralized formations above the mineralized zone on site. Godbe Drilling has completed many mother hole directional wedge drilling projects. Our team drills a vertical hole into the ore body. Then, wedges are set above the formation and multiple directional holes are drilled at different angles into the ore body. We can further maximize ore body definition by making these wedges different depths and directions.
Surface & Underground Drilling
Godbe Drilling specializes in surface and underground mineral exploration diamond core drilling in both the United States and Mexico. We use track-mount, truck-mount, skid-mount, and helicopter portable surface exploration core drilling machines (capable of depths greater than 2,000 meters) to complete these drilling projects. Our small but powerful underground drills operate using air, electric, or diesel power, meaning we can go over 2000 feet (610 meters) in any direction regardless of the power sources available on site.
Godbe Drilling is MSHA certified and compliant, and our expertise shines in these specific core drilling projects.
Helicopter Portable Equipment
When you contract with Godbe Drilling, you get the benefit of all-terrain mobility and advanced technical exploration. We utilize helicopter portable core drilling rigs for isolated and otherwise difficult to access exploration areas. These technically-advanced portable core drills are efficient and practical, allowing our team to execute any exploration project with precision.
Mineral Exploration Options
Godbe Drilling has experience performing core drilling and recovery for a variety of precious metals, including gold, silver, copper, uranium, zinc, molybdenum, lead, lithium, porphyry copper, and coal.
Critical Minerals & Rare Earth Elements
Throughout our numerous drilling and extraction projects, we have encountered a wide array of critical minerals and rare earth elements, such as cobalt, nickel, platinum, copper, aluminum, dysprosium, electrical steel, fluorine, gallium, iridium, lithium, magnesium, graphite, neodymium, praseodymium, silicon, carbine, and termium.
