Aggregate Drilling Services

Summit Drilling supports large quarry and test pit owners with expert coring services. Geotechnical drilling and sampling of aggregate materials such as sand, gravel, and stone determines material location and volume, two critical factors in terms of excavation planning and cost estimating.

Summit’s provides reliable core sampling that is used to determine the thickness of aggregate beds, as well as the amount of overburden present. Cores can be studied to determine the volume of materials for excavating. At the same time, core samples will help determine the amount of vegetation and topsoil covering the material beds. Ideal locations will have high volumes of a desired aggregate material with lower depths of overburden to remove prior to excavation.

To ensure maximum uptime, Summit proactively maintains all equipment through their internal Fleet Maintenance and Management Division. This ensures our field crews can execute targeted amounts of core drilling per day with minimal to no disruption.
