Portable core drillhas been primarily used for precious metals and
basic metals investigationsince it was invented. The handheld drill
has been found to be best used as a near-surface initial scanning
and mapping tool, often in conjunction with handheld XRF field
analyzers.When mineral enrichment is discovered by these means
larger drilling equipment can then be efficiently employed to
establish vertical definition.
Also, Portable core drill was used for a variety of projects
including petroleum source, reservoir, cap rock investigations,
paleomagnetic studies, hydrogeologic investigations including
monitoring well installations by Academic investigators.
What’s more, the handheld core drill has been used for steel fence
post in rock installation, concrete and rock demolition with the
use of explosives or expanding concrete (. With the use of larger
diameter core bits the drill can be used for clean, fast
penetration of concrete walls and foundations for electrical and
some plumbing work.
