Abstract: Problems often arise in the shaft drilling industry in the Southeast. The karst areas in this region have certain situations found in few other places. Erratic boulders and limestone pinnacles often test the definition of 'what is rock?' for pay purposes. A thorough subsurface investigation can prevent many unfortunate situations from developing and assure timely completion of foundation drilling projects.
