We just spent a beautiful day with our CME 75 drilling at Kelso Conservation Area!

New York State Geological Survey

We sent a crew to New York to do a drilling project for the New York State Geological Survey, obtaining special PQ soil core for Dr. Andrew Kozlowski.

Bermuda Bridges

Aardvark - The Bermuda Bridges Geotechnical InvestigationAardvark has completed work on The Bermuda Bridges Geotechnical Investigation. The project was completed successfully within the budgeted timeline of 40 days.

Here we are loading the rig on the barge in preparation for testing the soil and coring the bedrock at the “Swing Bridge” and “Longbird Bridge/Causeway” near the Bermuda Airport.

Have Geoprobe… will travel…

Aardvark - 6610 GeoprobeWe recently took apart and packaged up our our little 6610 Geoprobe, to be loaded in an airplane to fly from Thunder Bay to a mine in Weagamow, ON.

We’ll be there for 12 weeks, doing injection well installations.

Walking the Talk – Ground Water Canada

Aardvark Drilling is a new-generation business focused on health and safety and on employee engagement.

Scrolling through the Aardvark Drilling social media sites – Twitter and Facebook – tells you something about this Guelph-based company. Posts highlighting St. Patrick’s Day, PiDay, and the International Day of Happiness mingle with soft-sell promotion and client-feedback invitations.

Timely quips and cartoons balance facts about water and news about Canada Water Week, Ground Water Awareness Week, and World Water Day. Photos show the Aardvark team assisting with the train derailment in Gogama in March, as well as the truck they painted pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Week. And safety – there’s a lot about safety.

“Safe, reliable, and professional” is more than just a tagline at Aardvark Drilling Inc.: these folks really walk the talk.

And they want to get everyone engaged in that conversation.
