Indochina Geotechnics has a very new and modern fleet of drilling equipment. Most of the drilling equipment is sourced from the Boart Longyear Company and is manufactured in Australia and Europe.
+ Double tube wireline system - HQ, NQ (Longyear design)
Indochina Geotechnics JSC is proud to become the first Vietnamese company that owns and operates a reverse circulation (RC) drilling system for mineral exploration and grade control in the first large scale RC job in Vietnam. By using RC system, the significant cost (up to 50%) and time saving (up to 400%) has been achieved in comparison with diamond core drilling method while the quality of samples still meet the highest requirements of the mining industry.
Our drilling crews also have expertise and tooling to get quickly and safely though most challenging grounds including saturated loose sand and gravels, un-compacted rock fills and overburden soils using wire-line casing advancers, symmetric overburden and exocentric overburden drilling systems.
