Our Mine Site Services Division has provided safe, efficient and innovative grade control drilling, blast hole drilling and blasting services to the Australian mining industry since 1998.
Our fleet includes custom-built grade control rigs, modified blasting rigs and all accompanying support vehicles and equipment.
We can provide the latest drill rigs with proven technology to all sizes of mining operations; from one rig short-term projects to multiple rigs with multiple drilling techniques. We can also manage blasting services.
Our blasting services team will work with our clients to improve blasting operations and work towards continuous improvement with every blast.
We understand time is money
In our 50 years of operation, we’ve developed a deep understanding of how our services can affect a client’s operation. A poorly-drilled hole, or a hole in the wrong location can critically affect a blast or contaminate a sample. An unreliable rig can place pressures on downline operations – such as a load and haul fleet – leading to expensive delays.
Our philosophy when drilling is to always give our clients what we call ‘quality metres’.
Productivity through reliability
The way we maximise productivity is through reliability. We use only modern, efficient rigs serviced to high standards by our own mechanics. We also have well-trained, experienced operators.
Our equipment also features the latest in real time monitoring which allows us to manage drill efficiencies and provide analytical reports and service performance indicators.
Our current drill fleet includes:
- Atlas Copco Smart ROC D65s
- Atlas Copco ROC L8
- Sandvik DR 580
- Drilltech D 45 KS
