About The Course

Over the past 21 years the GSSA has presented drilling courses to the southern African drilling industry aimed at improving the knowledge and skills of practicing geologist. The courses have proven to be very popular, attracting delegates from most African countries and from as far afield as Brazil, Argentina and Russia.

The course includes a review of all common drilling methods as well as a detailed review of all aspects of diamond core drilling.

This programme is considered a pre-requisite for the Drill Site Safety Course presented by Colin Rice Exploration & Training (Pty) Ltd.

Who Should Attend

The course is aimed at practicing professionals involved in all aspects of exploration drilling programmes as well as persons involved in surface and underground mining projects.

Questions will be encouraged throughout the course. Participants will receive printed course notes and a copy of “The Diamond Drilling Handbook” by Dr WF Heinz.
