Rupert Allan - Skeena Resources Ltd.
During the month of October, 2014, Blackhawk Drilling successfully completed a technically challenging, dangerous diamond drilling program in northwestern British Columbia on our behalf. The helicopter-supported due diligence investigation project (9 holes, NQ core totaling 2,000 metres) was located at high altitude in very steep terrain and all drilling was undertaken from constructed timber platforms. The prevailing weather conditions were ‘winter-like’ and decidedly inclement for the entire job. The drillers and full-time foreman were personable and communicated and worked well with the helicopter pilot and our geological crew – drill moves and set-ups, waterline maintenance, minor equipment repairs, re-fueling, shift changes, and most importantly, drilling was safely, competently, and efficiently conducted. The drill rig, support equipment and spares were well chosen and maintained. Blackhawk did an admirable job of planning and provisioning, thereby minimizing helicopter hours and standby charges. Blackhawk’s record keeping and invoicing perfectly matched our supervisor’s records, and there were no billing disputes. Skeena Resources would unreservedly recommend Blackhawk’s services, and will again be asking them to bid any future requirements that we may have.
