I specialize in seismic profiling and BANKA drilling for alluvial exploration and alluvial mining projects in Americas or Africa.
When your project needs an eluvial/alluvial deposit geological engineer contact me.
EXPLORATION FOR GOLD and DIAMONDS
The major advantages of Banka drills are the low cost, the simplicity of use and the reliability.
The basic tool for alluvial exploration is cased drill. The most popular is Banka drill. It has a long history as it was originally invented over 150 years ego. The fact that the modern versions of Banka drill are still in use demonstrates the usefulness of that alluvial exploration tool. Where the access is difficult, the manual versions are used. Where the access is not a problem the powered versions are used. The casings of these drills come in three sizes 4, 6 and 8-inch. The manual Banka drills use 4 and 6-inch casings. The powered drills use 6 and 8-inch casings.
Banka drills are used for taking samples in eluvial or alluvial gold or diamonds exploration projects where the reliability of sampling program is the main concern. The use of connecting casings prevents contamination of samples taken at progressive depths. The presence of water, in the tested ground, does not present any problem, on the contrary it helps.

Where the access to the drilling site is not a problem, the 8-inch size casings are preferred and the depth more than 20 m. is expected, a powered version of Banka drill; Pioneer PP-150 mk2 is used.
It offers the same low cost, simplicity and reliability as it manual version. In addition it speeds up the drilling while using smaller drill crew.
Pioneer and Banka drills are made to order using the best steel and modern production technology. A complete set of drilling tools is available and special tools can be made according to the customer's design.
Where an excavator is available on drilling site, a boom mounted version of 8-inch Banka drill is also available. It uses very small drilling crew and provides the same quality of sampling with lesser drilling time. This type of Banka is used in systematic sampling of alluvial deposits to establish proven reserves. More information...
HARD ROCK DRILLS
We also provide all types of advanced rotary / percussion drills mounted on truck or crawler. These drills are made to costumer's specifications.
Click on the above pictures to access complete information on the respective Banka drills or contact me for the price and the delivery information.
With a long experience in alluvial exploration, we provide to our costumers drilling crew training and alluvial exploration consulting services.
If you need to cover a large area of alluvial deposits to select smaller areas for drill sampling, consider using seismic profiling; the most economical approach to select drill sites.
10000 links to companies, consultants, suppliers and organizations of mining industry. Mining links to alluvial mining, hard rock mining, gold mining, diamond mining, and mining of base metals. In addition to mineral industry links, this mining directory of web links offers links to mines, exploration projects, natural resources, mining education at leading universities, and web sites related to mining or mineral industry. This web site is created by a mining professional dedicated to development of mining of mineral resources, especially alluvial mining of gold and diamond, and exploration for natural resources. A mining enthusiast or a mining professional can find links to mines and companies situated in North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia. The majority of mining links lead to Canadian, Australian, American or other companies operating in all corners of the world. Special attention is placed on providing professionals of geology, geophysics, and mining engineers with a database of mining resources with global information. Offers for jobs, or a job in mining job market are posted regularly in Miner's exchange database. To help in finding a mineral industry job, mining links directory accepts free submission of resumes from geologists, geophysicists, mining engineers and anyone involved, or wishing to get involved, in mining, exploration, exploitation, evaluation and mining of gold, diamonds, base metals, petroleum, oil, gas, aggregates, or other natural resources. When you are searching for sources of mining equipment, heavy equipment, mineral recovery or drilling, you must use mine links directory. This web site offers database of mineral properties for anyone interested to start an exploration or mining project for gold, diamonds or any other precious metal, base metal, precious stones or just stones. Alluvial mining and alluvial exploration in South America, Amazon basin, are given a prominent space. Why? I lived over a decade in Amazonian jungle with garimperos and amerindians.
