We take pride in an excellent safety record. Hundreds of thousands of metres have been safely drilled in conditions varying from good to extremes with regards to terrain, weather and rock formations.

Teams are well equipped, both mentally and physically to prevent incidents and always put safety first. A complete safety management system is implemented and maintained by an external risk management consultancy.


A complete risk assessment package have been developed, forming the basis of thorough safe work procedures on which regular training and retraining are presented to the teams. Employees are fully represented in all health and
safety matters.


We have a fleet of 60 Diamond drill rigs and 4 RC rigs as well as 12 drill rigs capable of drilling BQ down to 2,500m. We also have our own transport department consisting of trucks and low beds to mobilize drill rigs and equipment to site.

Drilling operations were done in Northern Kwa-Zulu Natal, Mpumalanga, the Highveld, the Western Bushveld Complex, Mali, Zimbabwe and Botswana.

Our objective with regards to client satisfaction is twofold namely:

1. To deliver the best service in the industry; and
2. to be regarded by our clients as their first choice.

Years of experience in the exploration drilling environment have taught us valuable lessons with regards to the requirements of an excellent drilling machine.

At Discovery Drilling we manufacture our own drill rigs to specifications answering those requirements.

We are continuously striving to beat the odds and the competition by delivering quality equipment and an effective maintenance and repair program to the drilling teams.
