Customer stories

Future. Safe.

November 20, 2018

There is always a point in time that you can look back on and say – that was when everything changed. For safety in exploration drilling, that point in time is now and one company is leading the change in South Africa.

In western South Africa, in the Northern Cape Province, lies Aggeneys, a small mining town that was established back in 1976 on a farm with the same name. The geology in this region is one of the most diverse in the whole of South Africa and also boasts some of the highest concentrations of base-metals in the country. Mainly zinc, copper and lead is being mined here, but there is also silver in the ground.
