    Exploration drilling in the Goldfields



    Here at McInnes Drilling, we’ve been involved in exploration drilling in the Goldfields since 1995. We’re experts in first pass exploration drilling as well as earth stakes and environmental drilling. Our owner-operator Bill McInnes has a wealth of international and domestic drilling experience, built up over 40 years of hard work in the industry.

    From our depot at Barton Street in Kalgoorlie, we’re ideally placed to provide prompt and effective drilling services all across the Goldfields area. Our team is also prepared to travel state-wide, so please do contact us with your specific requirements.

    Highly specialised drilling for first pass geochem exploration


    Our state-of-the-art drilling equipment is innovatively mounted on a pair of Toyota Land Cruisers, giving us access to areas that larger rigs would have difficulty reaching. Our methods are low impact and environmentally friendly, and we use the latest GPS to download client data and outcrop descriptions, as well as provide general mapping information.
