Geotechnical A wealth of drilling experience

On Track Drilling has a wealth of experience in drilling, coring, sampling, and testing. Our services include core samples, soil sampling, and well installation and decommissioning.

Drilling is usually vetted by a geotechnical consultant, engaged by the end-user, but On Track offers complete turnkey solutions. Site investigations provide you with highly accurate data on soil stability, rock characteristics, and information regarding the position and nature of the water table.

We also employ and diverse range of drilling methods and equipment, designed to penetrate a variety of geological formations in order to extract quality samples for review by our clients.

Whether your project requires Becker Hammers or sonic, auger, or dual rotary rigs, you can rest assured On Track has all the right equipment to get the job done.

Construction A firm foundation

OAt On Track Drilling, our diversified equipment fleet provides geotechnical samples to our clients working within the construction industry.

Using truck-mounted drilling rigs, we have equipment with the capability to drill and install small diameter vertical piles. Specialized drills are available for use in tight, enclosed, and unstable areas. We are able to drill through loose, unconsolidated overburden, setting casing, and coring through bedrock formations.

The dual rotary method employed in our operations is ideal to ensure that piles are drilled with minimal deviation in order to meet the specifications of each project.

  • Becker Hammer Drilling to Set Casing
  • Odex Casing Setting Through Overburden
  • Rock Coring
  • Mud Rotary Drilling
  • Ground Rod Installation
  • Cathodic Protection

Pipelines Efficiency you can rely on

On Track Drilling operates drilling rigs and support equipment that are designed to access remote locations in order to complete geotechnical investigations for Horizontal Directional Drill (HDD) crossings.

We use low ground-pressure auger, ODEX, and coring rigs to conduct our operations. Our track-rigs, mounted on Marooka MST-1500 track carriers built with rubber tracks, allow for minimal ground disturbance during the course of a project.

Specialized Testing (CPT)

On Track Drilling has technical expertise and equipment to perform the Cone Penetration Testing (CPT) needed for your site.

CPT provides detailed, cost-effective site characterization. This process is ideal for sands, silts, clays, soft soils and mine tailings.

Our system offer a continuous soil profile and real-time data, enabling an accurate, on-site, lithologic subsurface representation. Seismic, resistivity, Ultraviolet induced fluorescence (UVIF) and gamma data can also be collected.
