Dewatering

Capabilities

Egan Drilling provides tailored dewatering and groundwater control services to junior, mid cap, and large cap mining companies across Australia. Our approach emphasises precision and effectiveness to safeguard critical mining operations from groundwater interference.

We have expertise in providing drilling solutions for dewatering on mine sites. By utilising a multipurpose rig set up, we have the capability to deploy reverse circulation, conventional air drilling, mud rotary and air core methods. 

DEEP WELL INSTALLATIONS

We specialise in installing deep well and pump systems, a highly effective technique for lowering groundwater levels across a broad area beneath an excavation and can complete installations up to 14" on site. This method offers a comprehensive solution to groundwater control in mining operations.

DEWATERING APPLICATIONS

We offer decades of experience in sump pumping, a method in which groundwater is channeled into an excavation and subsequently collected in a sump before being pumped away. This process is instrumental in managing water levels within mining operations.

DEWATERING ADVANTAGES

One common challenge with sump pumping is the potential for water seepage into the excavation, which can lead to instability and other hazards within a mining pit. Our services focus on drilling and installing water bores of various diameters to effectively control groundwater in and around excavations. This minimises or completely eliminates seepage risks.
