Geotechnical Drilling Service - About Us

Elite Drilling Services have been providing exceptional drilling services for more than 17 years along the front range and surrounding states. We have assembled an experienced, professional staff with a combined experience of 100 years in the drilling industry. This high level of experience provides the knowledge and expertise to complete projects in a professional, timely, and safe manner.

Our drillers have the knowledge and past experience of subsurface conditions, including the geology and related drilling requirements, in order to conduct subsurface investigations in prompt, courteous, and economical manner. Additionally, our staff is uniquely qualified to provide our clients with innovative solutions to drilling situations, which can increase efficiencies and/or data quality.

The Elite Drilling Services staff has worked on numerous environmental Geotechnical and exploration mine sites. Our experience includes drilling in Level B, C, and D PPE at environmental and hazardous waste sites across the Western and Midwestern United States. All field staff maintain OSHA hazardous waste operations (HAZWOPER) training and other required health and safety training, including respiratory protection and annual physicals. We have experience working with all types of contaminants, including radioactive waste, chemical and nerve agents, and unexploded ordnance.

Elite Drilling Services specializes in solid-stem and hollow-stem auger drilling, rotary drilling (mud and air), as well as hard and soft rock coring utilizing NQ, HQ, and PQ wireline coring. Along with these services we offer wireline and conventional packer testing, utilizing all 3 size core holes. We have been installing piezometers, monitoring wells, dewatering wells, and recovery wells. Since 1997 we have compiled an excellent record for completing projects on schedule, within budget, and to the exacting specifications of our clients.

Soil boring and well installations services can be performed with various sizes of auger or tooling, depending on the project needs. Soil sample collection is performed in accordance with American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standards. These include the use of split-spoon samplers, California samplers, Shelby tubes, and CME continuous samplers. CME continuous samplers work best for slightly cohesive soils, assisting with accurate logging of lithologic changes and/or soil profiles for both environmental and geotechnical projects.

Elite Drilling Services maintains our own fleet of drilling and support equipment, allowing us to minimize field breakdowns, however if they do occur we are capable of performing most repairs in the field. This minimizes costly down time to both us and our clients.

We look forward to the opportunity to working with you on any future drilling needs you may have. Our goal continues to be to develop long-term working relationships with our clients. Please feel free to contact me if I can provide you any additional information.
