With 30 years of drilling statistics, RPM has accumulated a wealth of information about ground formations, water quality, water quantity and depth of shifting in each specific area. With our special equipment, any formation for example alluvium (sand, round stones and gravel) can be drilled with ease.

All our machines are high pressure, and boreholes of 300 metres + can be drilled with ease. RPM have developed a unique system to perforate steel lining that has already been installed. This leaves greater room for the success of any borehole. In cases where water is not found in solid rock, perforation can occur and alluvial water can then be used.

We offer an additional service, over and above drilling new boreholes, of cleaning and rehabilitating existing boreholes. In many cases, the existing borehole is fitted with a perforated PVC lining (skroefdraad-koppeling/screw thread coupling?) and gravel pack is then installed. This ensures hassle-free use of the borehole.
Household boreholes are handled daily. We always aim to complete the entire process within 2 days, to ensure minimum disruption.

In determining the location for drilling, we refer our clients to an individual or company that can best assist them. Important to note is that we have developed and expanded our database to include only those who achieve the best results in different areas.

RPM’s skill and expertise are guaranteed!

blast hole drillingMonitoring boreholes

RPM has been involved for many years in the sinking of monitoring boreholes. In numerous instances we assist with the design of the boreholes. It is critical that the construction of these boreholes is meticulously planned. If water is found, we look at/consider a monitoring borehole (level). That is where water is found above solid rock in the alluvial layer, and monitored.

Secondly, deeper holes are sunk to monitor water in the solid rock. Once again, it is vital that this water in the rock does not mix with the alluvial water. The purpose of these holes, is to check for pollution and also to determine the availability of ground water in the long term.

Monitoring boreholes are also managed by us on a large scale at dumping grounds. Most of our monitoring boreholes are sunk at dumping grounds, fuel storage facilities, shaft poles, factories, alongside rivers and so forth.

RPM entered the mining arena 6 years ago and are currently underway with a large scale project in the North West. This involves mainly the sinking of boreholes in open pit mines, into which explosives are pumped. We have 5 track-driven machines responsible for drilling diameters of of 89, 102, 140, 203 and 250mm.
