American Rock Mechanics LLC, Zionsville Pennsylvania
If you need to know whether or not there is rock that needs to be shot on your site, test drilling is the way to go.
In the the long it will save time and money to take a day or two, depending on size of the site, to prod around and get a profile of the ground you will be excavating. This way you can include the costs of drilling/blasting in your planning, so it is not a surprise expense for your company and the customer midway through the project.
Also, it is much easier and definitely less expensive to blast the rock when the ground is still virgin, than it is to go through the longer, more expensive process of shooting exposed formations using blasting matts and cover, because there was "supposed to be no rock".
The bottom line is test drilling is an essential part of preparing a site for work and using a drilling company like American Rock Mechanics,LLC will give you an accurate idea of what lies ahead in terms of rock excavation.
