October 2021, AZIWELL celebrated the completion of 500 directional targets of an intensive and complex Infill program in the heart of the Guerrero Gold Belt.
Due to the morphology of the deposit, precision required to intercept the targets, topography of the site and enviromental regulations, it was necessary to implement directional drilling. This was all achieveable using AZIDRILL® Directional Core Barrell.
The Infill program consists of individual blocks of 9 targets per block reached from a single Mother Hole. Daugther holes are initiated from various KOP's (Kick Off Points) and are steered to their respective targets with strict directional steering control. The entire grid is based on a 30-meter spacing between targets with a +/- 5m tolerance.
AZIWELL is pleased to have shared this great achievement in cooperation with IDS de México and Layne de México.
The AZIWELL engineering team has more than 20 years of experience within R&D and field operations for the mining and civil engineering sector, as well as oil and gas process technology. With the introduction of our directional core drilling services summer 2018, Aziwell introduce a new standard in the market, providing reduced drilling costs, more information per drilled meter as well as accurate steering and targeting of drillholes.
Aziwell is headquartered in Norway with affiliates in Canada and Chile, and our services and products are available in most contries world-wide.
