DRILLING SERVICES ALL OVER CANADA
The crew at Determination Drilling loves adventure! We’ve been to some amazing, remote places which people typically wouldn’t visit for a vacation. Our work has allowed us to experience the northern lights of the Arctic Circle, the hospitality of the east coast, and the relentless mosquitoes of the James Bay Lowlands. No project is too far or complicated for us to complete safely, and efficiently. We are logistics experts, and always find a way to get our equipment from point A to point B whether by road, rail, air, or water.
Our motto is the 6 Ps:
Pre Project Planning Prevents Poor Performance
This means expecting the unexpected, and having spares readily available to minimize downtime. DDSI has a strict equipment maintenance program and performs all of it’s own repairs in house to ensure it’s done properly and on time. Our trucks are all very reliable thanks to the equipment maintenance program we are committed to at Fleet Tech www.fleettechtruck.ca.
We have been drilling the soils and rock of our huge country for since 2004. Experience drilling boreholes and core holes in the this diverse geology has given our drilling technicians a great deal of experience. Our drillers face new challenges everyday, and have great experience and support to overcome them.
Though Determination Drilling is based out of Southern Ontario, it does not limit us to that area. We have drilled many other provinces/territories like Newfoundland & Labrador, Nunavut, Quebec, and Manitoba. We have been drilling in far James Bay many times for exploration drilling of kimberlite pipes, we’ve been to Newfoundland and Labrador several times diamond core drilling the iron ore, and traveled above the arctic circle to Nunavut for a variety of different mining & infrastructure related projects.
We also take on bigger projects in Southern Ontario, naming a few, we have done geotechnical drilling on the 400 series highways dozens of times, drilling for CN, CP, & Metrolinx for new and old rail lines, and have also found ourselves drilling off barges in the Welland Canal for Highway 406 and Lake Ontario for Ontario Place. We have gone to many different chemical plants and steel plants, which require a great deal of Health & Safety protocol to complete environmental drilling. Basically, with our comprehensive HSE plan we are able to safely drill virtually anywhere but mitigating potential hazards before they become an issue.
