A privately owned company, Alton Drilling provides quality professional service with a friendly business approach.
Alton’s main drilling focus is exploration, including diamond coring, open hole, percussion drilling, coal & mineral exploration, reverse circulation (RC) and aircore drilling. The company also has worked on various seismic, geotechnical and instrumental jobs, drilling all types of ground conditions in all types of locations.
Using the latest drilling equipment and technology combined with a wide range of experience spanning many years, Alton Drilling is able to lend specialist expertise to projects around the country. Continual research into new drilling rigs and equipment keeps Alton Drilling at the forefront of drilling in New Zealand.
Alton Drilling is also very involved in the manufacturing and design of exploration drilling rigs. The ADL Series rigs are working all around the world including Australasia, Asia and Europe.
The rigs can be mounted on rubber or steel tracks, or for drill sites in remote or steep locations, the rigs can be built to be heli-portable and can be broken down into flyable components.
Alton Drilling also offers a design service and is able to build ‘one-off’ machines, purpose-built for the client’s requirements.
Specialisation, experience and innovation have combined to make Alton Drilling Ltd your Guaranteed Complete Drilling Service Provider.

Our smaller rigs can be broken down to be moved by helicopter. Our larger rigs mounted on Tracked Marookas can make site access easy.
We can also build support vehicles such as rod carriers to work with ADL Series rigs.
With our extensive experience in building and operating drilling rigs we can offer a design and refurbishment service to our customers. We can design a rig from the ground up to suit your specific project or technical drilling needs.
We can also source second hand equipment and refurbish it to provide you with a cost effective solution. We can take your old rig and make it new again.
