Deepcore Drilling are excited to announce our nomination as a finalist (Innovative Mining Solution category) for this year’s Australian Mining Prospect Awards.
Deepcore Drilling provides diamond drilling services to the Australian and Asian Pacific mining and civil engineering industries.
We specialise in both underground and deep surface directional drilling, and provide high-pressure dewatering, helicopter portable drill programmes and specialised geotechnical testing services.
Underground coring mobile rigs for the mining sector
Deepcore has the range of capabilities, experience and equipment to meet the needs of our mining, exploration and geotechnical client base, ranging from short-hole production drilling to complex drilling programmes that include holes in excess of 2,000m with multiple intersections.
We are ready to deploy the Boart Longyear MDR700, the next-generation underground coring mobile drill rig.
The MDR delivers a wide range of benefits in comparison to other mobile drill rigs, such as:
- Onboard rod handling; reducing the risk of hand and back injuries associated with handling rods
- Multi-mode four-wheel steering, saving time moving from hole-to-hole as it has an agile Manitou diesel-powered four-wheel drive carrier
- The wide-angle turntable and integrated positioner drill design enable wide drilling angles and facilitate positioning and drilling at angles up to 270° horizontally and vertically up or down
- The drill control interface (DCi) offers semi-automation and a fully electronic interface to operate both the rod handler and drill efficiently and safely
Innovative environmental and community solutions
Deepcore has a proven history of successfully managing environmentally and community sensitive programmes.
We implement a tailored development programme with safety observation processes. We use the latest cutting-edge equipment and invest our research and development into new rig designs and rod handling systems.
The Acoustic Shed is our latest innovative design and custom construction addressing the sound and visual amenity needs of a project. It is purpose-built and designed to reduce the amount of sound that is made by a drilling rig during 24-hour operations.
The shed is fully flat-packed and easily transported while its easy assembly ensures fast installation.
Capable of reducing noise pollution of drilling operations in adverse areas, the Acoustic Shed has allowed clients to benefit from a reduction in the visual and environmental impact on the community and the environmental stakeholders.
Deepcore Drilling’s comprehensive logistical skills and experience ensure that we are ready to deploy our services in any environment, from complex urban sites to remote regions. Our expert flexible team operates in a self-sufficient and contained manner.
We deliver within our client’s required parameters, utilising Deepcore Drilling’s world-first innovative solutions to meet every project’s environmental and noise sensitivities.
Deep directional drilling expertise
Deepcore are industry leaders in underground mobile, acoustic drilling and deep directional drilling. We are engaged in some of Australian’s major geotechnical projects, delivering deep directional drilling advice and services.
We have 30 drill rigs underground and on-surface drill sites in Eastern Australia, Papua New Guinea and New Zealand.
Our mission is to provide quality drilling solutions in collaboration with our customers.
We have worked with many of our clients for up to ten years and offer a direct and effective relationship at all levels of our business, from drill team to management. This is enabled due to our extensive capacity and experience, yet are small enough to be flexible and responsive.
