Over the past 21 years the GSSA has presented drilling courses to the southern African drilling industry aimed at improving the knowledge and skills of practicing geologists. The courses have proven to be very popular, attracting delegates from most African countries and from as far afield as Brazil, Argentina and Russia.
It is focused specifically on various aspects of core drilling, and will cover introductory as well as advanced material. The course includes a review of all common drilling methods as well as a detailed review of all aspects of diamond core drilling.
This programme is considered a pre-requisite for the Exploration Drill Site Safety Course presented by Colin Rice Exploration & Training (Pty) Ltd.
