Custom built all-terrain drilling and equipment pads with a minimum of 5:1 safety factor. Tangiers has constructed pads that have been loaded up to 45,000 pounds with a 10:1 safety factor and a 405,000-pound safety margin. Built with integral strength and tiebacks they can endure the stress of constant vibration as well as repeated vertical and lateral loading.
Pads can be configured to accommodate any type of geotechnical drill system (including tracked) as well as any accessory equipment requirements.
Fall protection options include standard OH&S approved handrail design as well as a low-profile aviation style fall protection net system. The second option is optimal if equipment is continuously being moved on and off the pad via a helicopter long line – such as fuel resupply tanks.
