Learn About Our Safety Culture

Morgan Corp. is proud to partner with Palmetto Rock, a wholly owned subsidiary and the Southeast’s top rock drilling and blasting company. Palmetto Rock provides top-class drilling, blasting, and mechanical services for various industries across the region by leveraging highly skilled professionals with advanced tools and technology.

Types of Rock Drilling and Blasting Services We Offer

Our expert contract drilling and blasting services cover three primary areas:


For over 30 years, Palmetto Rock has provided expert contract drilling services for quarries, mines, construction sites, and more. Whether fragmenting rock that requires excavation or preparing for a more complex controlled blast, we have truly mastered this highly specialized skill and can handle the most challenging drilling projects with an unmatched level of safety and professionalism.

  • Capable of drilling holes 2 inches to 6 ½ inches in diameter
  • Drilling pattern flexibility
  • Horizontal and vertical drilling

Dedicated to getting the best results with the least amount of vibration and air blast to the project site and neighboring environment, the Palmetto Rock team uses only safe, proven blasting methods.

  • Electronic blasting initiation system
  • Non-electric detonator
  • Survey with the coordinates of the boreholes and explosion sites
  • Deslagging for precise boiler cleanup

Sometimes controlled blasting isn’t an option because of the vibration, risk of fly rock, noise, or sensitive facilities nearby. In these cases, instead of a blast, we fracture the rock or concrete with chemical rock-splitting agents and hydraulic breakers. Regardless of your needs, we’ll find the right solution to keep your project moving forward.

  • Excavator-mounted hydraulic breakers for fracturing large areas of rock or concrete
  • Dā-mite® Rock Splitting Mortar for silent, vibration-free fracturing in rock-cuts up to 50 feet deep
