Drilling deep for the mines of tomorrow

02 / 12 / 2019

With the majority of global drilling budgets going toward brownfield expansion of operating mine sites, true greenfield discovery has slowed in recent years.

Rig #1270 is part of one such greenfield project – a deep mud rotary and diamond drilling program near Boulia in Far North West Queensland.

As the mine life and ore grades of major mineral deposits continue to decrease globally, it is great to see the hunt for the mines of the future back on the agenda.
