Remote Drilling Challenges

Location: near Benton, IL (8 miles from any hard road)

Client: Canadian National Illinois Central Railroad

Services: soil borings

Overview: Bulldog Drilling crews drilled soil borings to depths of 65-75 feet with 10 feet of rock coring. Since the location was remote, the project required modification of our CME-75. The drill rig was fitted with rail wheels to allow access to remote railroad bridges. The project was completed successfully with all borings cement grouted.
