Rock peppering is when the drill rig drills a pattern of holes close to each other then use an excavator with a rock hammer can remove the rock faster, or this same technique can be used to help piling drills in hard rock speed up the process.

What is Rock Peppering?

If you’re working on a site that is in a confined space or urban area, rock peppering might be the right drilling technique for you. Rock peppering is used when you can’t blast due to restrictions. The rock peppering drilling technique works by drilling holes in close proximity of a 300mmx300mm square pattern. This pattern makes it easier for rocks to be extracted by hammer excavation.
