RC Drillers achieve 0.3% sample errors from a 9000 sample population


CDC achieves record low drilling campaign sample error percentage.

During a recent Reverse Circulation exploration drilling campaign, Castle Drilling Company delivered the client 100% sample return (2x 20kg samples with nosample loss at all), and 28 errors over a sample population of 9000. These errors largely consisted of spilt bags and numbering issues which were easily rectified.

The challenge during the 6 week program was to provide the client with innovative solutions to the non-typical requirements they had, with the entire crew understanding how imperative sample quality is to the clients bottom line. 0.3% still allows room for improvement however!
