Exploration is defined as ‘the action of traveling in or through an unfamiliar area in order to learn about it.’ This definition is no truer than in drilling. Though all drilling operations can be grouped under this definition, it is the continued search for minerals and valuable materials which defines our service. Paddock has a multitude of techniques and equipment capable of executing small or large scale exploration programs in the harshest environments.

  • Sonic coring
  • Traditional coring
  • Sampling
