Falcon Drilling Ltd. - Canada

British Columbia, Canada is the location of the original Falcon Drilling office, established by Grant and Gary Paulson in 1986.  From this location drilling operations have been carried out throughout Canada and worldwide using a large variety of custom designed equipment.  At inception the company was involved in such notable projects as the "Snip", "Eskay" and "Bronson Creek".  Falcon Drilling rapidly developed a reputation for successfully tackling jobs that no one else would undertake.  Since then we have successfully weathered the periodic difficult times in the mining industry due to our commitment to "in house" innovation and superior service delivery.   The Canadian office also serves as the primary location of our drill design and manufacturing.
From it's beginnings in Prince George Falcon Drilling has now become a global company with many drilling operations completed or underway in Africa, Asia, the Pacific region, South, Central, North America and Mexico

The reputation and high regard in which the company is held is a tribute to all employees and has enabled the attraction and retention of highly experienced management and field operation personnel.

The "Pins" on the map below indicate a few of the many drilling projects that we have carried out throughout Canada.

Health and Safety Objective.

All of Falcon Drilling’s operations are governed by our corporate Health, Safety and Environmental (HS&E) program and policy manuals. Our health and safety goal is to eliminate work related accidents, injuries and illness, and promote health and safety in every client related task.

Regionally.
There are many instances where local conditions warrant site specific safety requirements e.g. high temperature working conditions, wildlife considerations, extreme cold, low water availability. These specific conditions are controlled through management supervision, pre-job site hazard assessments and safe work practices implemented to minimize hazards.

 

Training.
Regional safety training courses are conducted to ensure employees use safe working practices and are aware of the risks and mitigation measures applicable to regional conditions. Qualified instructors conduct our training programs.

 

Environmental.
Falcon Drilling adheres to all local environmental requirements. We ensure these requirements are met to the highest standard through the development of environmental work plans which follow the four principles our environmental management program “Prevention, Compliance, Conservation and Restoration”.
