Drilling (Rockworks)

Drilling is a term used to describe the act of drilling into the earth with the utilization of a mechanical power drill. Depending on the required depth and diameter of hole required the size of the drilling apparatus or drill rig can vary from a small hand operated drill to a large machine weighing tones. Common applications of drilling in rock works is to place anchor points for slope stabilization installations (Drape Mesh or High energy rock fall fences for example.), to create rock slope drains, prepare the slope for trim blasting, or to place rock bolts engineered to secure potentially unstable sections of rock. Global Mountain Solutions and Global Rock Works specializes in high angle and remote access drilling and anchoring services.
