I used to work on core drills in the Yukon and Northern BC as well as drills on seismic projects, right now it is pretty dead out there work wise so there may be another option to consider. For a percentage or a small piece of the pie so to speak you might be able to get an owner/operator to do a fair chunk of drilling for you.

Just a thought, cheers.

Thanks, I'll  tryinryg every angle I can think of.

Hi.From the pics of your excavator sinking.If that is what you want to drill forget it.You are talking 70% soup.You can not core /auger drill with anything in that crap.You need to drain your swamp or pump it out or simply sink a few cases of powder and blow out a pit.The water will drain back in but you can pump it out.There is no simple cheap way of dealing with swamps.Some times you just have to face the facts.Moose pasture is exactly that.Last I got to say on the topic.Luck Mcbain.
I started out with nothing Istill have most of it.

Either wait to drill until it 's frozen solid...that will help prevent swamping your equipment..,.

or

buy yourself a  directional drill

Norbert77...if budget is an issue. and dollars are tight....old gear around ....

Example ...this is not the prettiest gal on the block..and it runs ..
Sitting in Ontario...for$3000 ..maybe less?....You might be able to  turn it into something that works for you....

thirty feet of casing until you lock in the bed rock then send your drill down. T he company I used to work for sold the ultralight with my gear trailer down in the states for 8000 . the drill would run around a 100,000 to replace today. Cost effectiveness ,experiment with an old drag behind or skid mount . JK boyles had some nice units out there years ago but they are hard to find now adays.
