Sediment Sampling Surveys
Reverse Circulation Drilling
ODM's founder, Stuart Averill, pioneered the modiﬁcation and use of reverse circulation (“RC”) drills to sample glacial till in areas of deep overburden.
High-quality till and alluvial sediment samples are vital for an accurate geochemical sampling program. ODM designs and executes surface sampling surveys in areas of thin overburden cover in all regions of Canada. From the Cordillera of British Columbia, frost boils of the Arctic and in the forests and bogs of the Abitibi and Newfoundland, ODM has sampled it all.
ODM's comprehensive project management services include:
Pre-program planning and budgeting
Surface sample collection
Drill supervision, hole logging and sample collection
Comprehensive data interpretation and reporting
