English term or phrase: condemnation drilling
To complete the EIA and the preliminary economic assessment, 48 drill holes (mostly reverse circulation percussion holes) were completed. Twenty holes were dedicated to sterilization (or condemnation) drilling of the proposed processing plant site and 22 to further evaluate water sources.

Explanation:
Sterilization drilling und condemnation drilling scheinen Begriffe für ein und denselben Vorgang zu sein.
Erklärung:
Sterilization (or condemnation) drilling tests areas of a mine site to be sure there are no valuable minerals there, so that buildings, roads, power lines, pipelines, waste piles, tailings disposal areas, etc. can be built on the areas that have been sterilized or condemned. Every mine site has at least one mineral deposit and infrastructure, and you need to be sure they don't conflict with each other.

It would be a huge and expensive mistake to build a $50 million mill facility only to find out there's a valuable mineral deposit underneath!

An interesting story on this subject is the discovery history of the Pipeline gold deposit near Battle Mountain, Nevada. When the mining compnay was looking for a good route to build a water pipeline to the nearby Cortez gold deposit, they carried out condemnation drilling along the proposed pipeline route, and discovered a 5 million ounce gold deposit. Needless to say, they were happy to choose a new route, and they named the new discovery Pipeline.


In einer Pressemitteilung von Extorre wurde der Beispielstext folgendermaßen übersetzt:
Zur Fertigstellung der EIA und der PEA wurden 48 Bohrlöcher (vorwiegend Reverse-Circulation-Schlagbohrlöcher) abgeschlossen.Zwanzig Löcher waren für eine Sterilisationsbohrung (oder „Condemnation Drilling“) bei der beabsichtigen Verarbeitungsanlage vor Ort und 22 Löcher für die weitere Evaluierung der Wasserquellen bestimmt.


In Ermangelung eines deutschen Begriffs könnte man in der Übersetzung wie oben Sterilisationsbohrung (oder „Condemnation Drilling“) schreiben, in einer anderen Quelle wurde "Condemnation" Bohrung verwendet.
