EDGE Drilling provides fully orientated, highest quality core samples with dual or triple tube applications through NQ, HQ and PQ core sizes. We are widely considered to be Western Australia’s leading Diamond Drilling company.
Diamond Core drilling is a system that drills and collects a core (cylindrical) sample in the state it is found, i.e. in-situ. The system known as ‘wireline coring’ is used, ie a diamond impregnated (hollow) core bit is used which cuts until the core barrel is full. Drilling Mud / Cutting oil cools/lubricates bit and acts as medium for lifting cuttings to surface. Diamond Drilling is perfect for Western Australia’s harsh environments.
