SRS ML drilling rig in Chinese news broadcast


A SmallRotoSonic ML (SRS ML) drilling rig shows up in a Chinese news broadcast about a big urbanisation related project in the Chinese Jinan area. The Shandong Provincial Bureau of Geology & Mineral Resources tells about the urbanisation project.

They used a Eijkelkamp SonicSampDrill SmallRotoSonic ML drilling rig with 3x5 sampling system for highly intensive drilling and sampling at 100 meters depth. The high quality samples were send to the lab for geo-mechanical parameters and soil physical parameters. They need this information to identify the soil stability for foundation and future underground traffic development.

Future research jobs in this area:

  • within 500 meters, groundwater resources survey, supply emergency water supply
  • within 2.000 meters, geothermal energy and shallow temperature survey, for the purpose of energy saving and emission reduction

The Shandong Provincial Bureau of Geology & Mineral Resources switched from traditional mineral exploration to geo-service within Shandong. Geo-service benefit to Jinan and Qingdao, with projects as underground survey and marine ecological remediation solution. Sonic drilling will increase production as well as the best quality of soil samples.
