Drillwell has been involved in mining and exploration drilling on Vancouver Island and worldwide for more than 20 years. We have done drilling for mineral exploration, mine dewatering, and environmental monitoring purposes.

We have worked on mining projects in South Africa, New Guinnea, Botswana, as well as sites in the Northern and Southern Rockies of British Columbia, and on Vancouver Island.
Our ability to do mud rotary drilling, air rotary drilling, angle drilling, overburden and rock drilling, and wireline core 3 inch to as deep as 1,500 feet enables us to tackle your toughest Vancouver Island exploration mining challenge.
