GEOTECHNICAL DRILLING SERVICES
Numac has one of the most diverse Geotechnical drilling fleets in Australia. Six dedicated Geotech machines operate from our depots in Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney. A mix of truck mounted and crawler mounted drilling machines allows us to access restricted metropolitan sites and remote regional areas effectively. All of our Geotech drillers are fully qualified with certificate III in Drilling operations and a minimum class 1 water well licence. We conduct works regularly on mine sites, tailings storage facilities, dams, and major infrastructure projects. With the addition of Sonic drilling rigs and Geoprobe mounted CPT systems we offer a full geotechnical solution for any investigation.
