Wade Barnes, Project Geologist, AuRico Metals Inc.

2015-12-17 I have had the pleasure in having Driftwood conduct shallow fly drilling programs and deep drilling programs at the Kemess Property for several years. The drilling was safe, clean and productive with very little downtime. All of Driftwood’s staff were approachable and easy to communicate with which helped create a positive work environment for each exploration program. I would recommend Driftwood for any exploration/mining project that needs any sort of diamond drilling.
