KB has worked successfully with many drillers in Australia. Pinnacle Drilling was facing issues getting acceptable core recovery in areas of unstable and highly fractured clays. Schonknecht Drilling was starting a new hole in an area of weak soils renowned for low core recovery. Drill Apes was experiencing issues with core recovery and low production due to short runs in clays and WestCore Drilling was using excessive amounts of alternative fluids in the presence of salt water contamination. In each case the driller switched to KB’s all in one bag CoreSMART system. The results were increased core recovery, up to a 95% drop in product consumption, increased production rates and a lower cost per meter drilled. The CoreSMART system also was successful in keeping reactive clays from swelling and handling highly fractured soils while maintaining hole integrity.
