Miraculous Drilling,Surpassing our African Record in Beaufort West. On the 9th of August 2018, Torque Africa Exploration surpassed its previous record of 1148m, for percussion drilling in Springs, by drilling a 1402m hole in Beaufort West. Drilling started on the 14th June with 216mm bit to a depth of 162m. Bits were changed to 165mm and drilling continued in shifts to 582m. We once again stepped down to 140mm and the original hole was completed at 706m. After discussion with the client, the decision was made to drill to 1400m. Drilling restarted on the 30th of July at 706m. Once again shift work was implemented. On the 7th of August we surpassed our previous record, and on the 9th of August we completed the hole at 1402m - a New African Record.
