Soil Sampling Inc
our 25th Anniversary
Soil Sampling Inc. is a limited Canadian company, incorporated in August, 1981,
with its head office in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Since then we have moved to
larger facilities in Concord, Ontario to consolidate our office, testing and storage
Sonic's primary objective is to provide a cost-effective, environmental
and geotechnical drilling service. This goal is achieved by utilizing innovative
and portable equipment, as well as a professional staff, to perform a variety
of tasks including sample collection and the installation of monitoring wells.
Working with the environmental sector we have completed programs in sensitive
areas that could not be accessed by conventional drilling equipment, including
First Nation Reserves and Canadian Air Force Bases. We also have conducted numerous
sampling programs for the industrial and mining sectors throughout the world.
crews use the Pionjar 120 Drill and Electrical Drilling Units with standard 2"
split-spoon samplers to drill inside factories, alongside busy streets and highways,
on lagoons and tailings ponds, and at mines and remote sites. This hearty piece
of equipment has achieved depths of 50', although our primary target horizon is
typically up to 20' in depth. Portability is the key component for utilizing the
Pionjar, virtually wherever you can walk we can get our equipment in and achieve
your sampling needs.
Our crews can also be equipped with a Portable Auger Unit capable of
using 4 inch solid stem augers or 6 inch hollow stem augers for installing 2"
monitor wells for groundwater inside and outside buildings. When your program
calls for indoor sampling, we can isolate the power pack outdoors and position
our drilling equipment indoors, through ordinary doorways.
those instances when you require a more powerful auger, but don't have the access,
we also offer you the availability of a 4x4 Truck mounted auger drill. With 4-wheel
drive we can access areas that are off-road or tight location in-town.
also provide portable geotechnical testing equipment for SPT and for soil load
profiles. At Sonic, we offer an automated SPT system that utilizes a 140 pound
drop weight that can either advance a cone or a split-spoon. For those areas that
have extremely limited access, whether it's an isolated basement or remote bush
areas, we also offer the Manual 70 pound drop weight.
addition, all of our crews use electrical concrete coring machines with diamond
bits for concrete coring and road testing.
Drilling services in Canada are
covered by a 5 Million Dollar General Liability insurance policy at all work sites.
In addition, the company has a comprehensive Pollution Insurance Policy and our
staff is provided with up-to-date Workers Compensation coverage's.
Drilling Systems we offer you at Sonic are a cost-effective solution for the environmental
and geotechnical sampling of shallow soils. No longer are you restricted to large,
truck mounted drilling rigs on environmental projects and sensitive work sites.
Accessibility to most sites is greatly improved by the portability of our drilling
equipment and ground instability is diminished on many sites including excavated
areas, confined spaces, ditches and wet mine tailings. With greater accessibility,
your customer has less disruption of business and less mess associated with the
'larger drill rigs'. This makes your customer happier and in turn generates more
repeat customer satisfaction.
Call us for a free quotation. You are not limited
any more on location, type of equipment or cost. We look forward to working with
you on your next project.

Pionjar120 Soil Sampling System is portable, enabling the unit to be carried into
environmentally sensitive and/or densely vegetated areas. The complete system
is compact and can be transported by aircraft, helicopter, pick-up, van or a 4X4
vehicle. The system is being used to drill alluvial sediments, laterites, saprolites
and caliche materials in South America, Central America, and Africa.
Pionjar 120 Drilling System is a cost-effective solution for the environmental
sampling of soils between 5 to 8 meters in depth. No longer are you restricted
to large, truck mounted drilling rigs on environmental projects and sensitive
work sites. Accessibility to most sites is greatly improved by the portability
of our drilling equipment and ground instability is diminished on many sites including
excavated areas, confined spaces, ditches and wet mine tailings.
