A driller’s work was as much about knowledge as it was about hard labour. A drill had to know all of the trades. Drilling and blacksmithing, cable splicing and millwrighting were vital but he also had to be an engineer, mechanic and geologist with knowledge of the earth and rock formations. These hard working people dedicated much of their life to drilling natural gas wells in the Haldimand area.
