Project Profile – Winter Drill Program

Arctic temperatures, frozen ground, high winds, heavy snowfall and ice are not ideal for outdoor activity. But for Terracon, the conditions are just right for one of the company’s busiest drilling programs. Our winter drilling program typically runs from November through March at various mine sites when the ground is frozen for winter-only access.

This winter, we had 26 employees dedicated predominantly to drilling. Our tasks ranged from running samples to scheduling the programs and everything in between. We were able to respond to our client’s ever changing needs quickly and efficiently through a dedicated team that at some points bent over backwards for the cause. Each and every member of the team did their part to help our success this year, and I hope it will lead to more work in the future.
