Established in May 2011, we are an African drilling company with a daring and inventive entrepreneurial mind-set. Since 2011, IDC is member of the Senegalese Chamber of Mines (Chambre des Mines du Sénégal, CMDS) and the Côte d’Ivoire Chamber of Mines (Chambre Des Mines de Côte d’Ivoire, CDMCI).

We offer highly flexible drilling services and operate in areas that are hard to access thanks to a modern drilling fleet, uncompromising safety standards and intimate knowledge of local business culture and language. Absolutely independent but also deeply reliable, we tailor customized solutions to meet the specific needs of our clients.


Integrity and Trust are the cornerstone of all our relationships with our clients, shareholders, employees, host communities, local governments and any other party we interact with. We respect the highest ethical standards and always meet our engagements.

Proximity and Responsiveness : We are flexible and act quickly thanks to our decentralized operational structure, local approach to work and lean management style. Our goal is to best meet the needs of our clients.

Human Development : Our aim is to contribute to the development of the African skill force providing local solution to Africa’s mining industry. Therefore, our team is composed of both local and international staff with solid experience in the drilling industry.

Safety and Quality : The safety and well-being of our employees is always at the forefront of everything we do. Thus, our teams are prepared and trained for safe and efficient operations. We use effective work procedures and practices to achieve performance and quality objectives.

Social and Environmental Responsibility : We make it a point of honor to establish and maintain responsible exploration and drilling. IDC is guided by its respect for established laws and regulations and local culture and customs. We effectively manage social and environmental impacts in order to foster sustainable development in the communities in which we operate.
