“Full Force Drilling is the company you want on your project to get the job done right and on time. Their efficiency, effectiveness, and safety standards have all contributed to well-executed drill programs for Baselode. Drill cuttings management is extremely important in the uranium exploration industry and we’re very proud that Full Force has managed to keep all of their drill pads and the surrounding environment clean and clear of radioactive drill cuttings. We didn’t hesitate to award them a 30,000 metre drill contract immediately after they drilled our discovery, and we’ll continue to advance our projects with them”

"I have worked extensively with Full Force Drilling over the past decade on both skid-mounted and helicopter-supported drill programs in the mountainous terrain of West-central and Northwest British Columbia. I have worked directly with Full Force personnel on exploration projects that comprised over 120,000 meters of diamond drilling. Full Force personnel are well trained in safety and efficiency and have maintained professional conduct throughout the various drill campaigns. Their equipment is ready to go when it arrives and well-maintained during drill operations, while communication and support from the management side is first rate. For these reasons I would not hesitate to recommend Full Force Diamond Drilling to any company who requires a safe, competent and reliable drilling contractor"
Cornell McDowell, P.Geo. - Surge Copper
"Full Force Drilling completed a 5000 meter drilling program on our Lawless Creek porphyry copper project during June-August, 2021. From my many years in the mineral exploration business and the 20 plus drilling programs that I have supervised over my career, I have to say that Full Force Drilling’s performance was outstanding. Their crews and equipment were top notch, completing the job in record time under some very trying conditions due to extensive wild fire activity"
I have no hesitation in recommending this company to anyone.
