Kryotek is a Yukon Corporation that specializes in geoscience relating to permafrost, climate change, engineering and resource exploration. We build and operate a fleet of lightweight drill rigs, operate geophysics equipment and provide geoscience consulting services across the circumpolar world.
Our experience in developing, building and operating lightweight drill rigs in northern conditions is a great asset in building hardware for remote site operations. Our logistics capacity also allows Kryotek to operate in a safe, professional and efficient manner.
Kryotek has a long and successful history of conceiving, developing and executing remote projects across the North that require specialized equipment, personnel and logistics. To date, we have completed hundreds of remote projects throughout the Canadian Arctic, Alaska and Siberia ranging from mining exploration to geotechnical engineering to household fuel spill remediation.
Kryotek strives to create and operate low impact, effective equipment and systems for use in northern conditions.
Dark Side Drilling, a division of Kryotek, offers drilling for the exploration, environmental and geotechnical industries, particularly those dealing with permafrost. Our machines range from hand-portable soil sampling drills to track-mounted air-rotary rigs. We custom fabricate rigs for remote and difficult access drilling projects.
Kryotek provides permafrost consulting, permafrost geohazard identification, site reconnaissance for remote drill projects and electrical resistivity geophysics. Geophysics is especially useful in mineral exploration, mapping aggregates and permafrost and determining depths to bedrock through overburden.
Our frost and permafrost sensor, FrostLink, can provide instant notification of ground thaw or freeze. The sensor and its hardware can be deployed beneath buildings or other infrastructure to warn of impeding permafrost thaw damage, or to monitor thaw and freeze in almost any location.
Kryotek’s affiliate PlacerPro identifies, explores and develops mineral properties, specializing in placer gold and jade. Through the use of drilling and geophysics equipment and experience we can locate and prove mineral potential. There are currently several properties available for sale or option.
