Songela Inc. began with a Canadian master driller: Daryl Fry. A man with more than 60 years of experience in geological exploration who lives by the principles of hard work, reliability, and quality results.
Mr. Fry formed Songela Inc. in 2011, after operating Atlas Drilling & Exploration Ltd. in Guyana for more than 20 years. Throughout those years, Mr. Fry became an expert in Guyanese customs and processes. When he formed Songela, he instilled throughout the company a commitment to supporting the local economy and to helping Songela’s customers conduct mining exploration projects in South America.
Mr. Fry developed fantastic relationships with local drillers, communities, and politicians in Guyana. He trained local drillers, some whom also became master drillers and still work for Songela.
Today, Songela remains based in Guyana and is the country’s largest drilling exploration company. At its office, Songela maintains an administrative staff of 5 members. They employ a local crew of up to 150 highly trained drillers who work year-round, including in the rainy seasons.
Songela retains a large fleet of well-maintained mineral exploration and water-well drills. Services include mineral exploration, geotechnical drilling, and water well drilling. Songela is focused primarily in the gold sector.
Maintaining its commitment to South America, to its staff and crews, and to best practices, Songela follows at every level of operations daily processes for health and safety and for reduced environmental impact.
