Drill Rigs

There are two drilling rigs with the necessary equipment for employing a variety of sampling and in situ testing techniques. Our Mobile B-80 drill rig is mounted on a four-wheel-drive Ford F‑700 chassis and is capable of drilling to depths exceeding 300 feet in soil.  Our Sprague-Henwood, skid-mounted drill rig is designed for taking core samples of rock.
