Our surface core drilling rigs meet rigorous safety standards required by the European safety organization. There are two emergency stop buttons. Extra working lights for night work are standard as are thread compensation for safer rod changes.

Flexibility and reliability

Tried and tested for many years, our surface core drilling rigs have proven their reliability. The backbones of these rigs are the strong Epiroc designed rotation units. Combined with other well proven components, such as the main hoist and feed system, drilling can be carried out with minimum downtime.

A complete package

We are able to supply all that is needed within surface exploration applications. This includes drilling rigs and a full range of high tech and high quality products such as drill rods, core barrels, core drilling bits and casings. With our extensive support network, parts and services are always close at hand.

Researchers from around the world are currently studying the evolution of the planet based on information provided with the help of Atlas Copco and a 2.5 kilometer deep drill hole.

Deep core sampling in ancient rock may help scientists to discover one of the biggest mysteries of evolution – when and how life on land first began.
