Our diamond drilling fleet

We operate a large fleet of Epiroc U6 and U8 drill rigs and Boart Longyear LM series, electric-hydraulic diamond drill rigs capable of deep hole and directional drilling. These rigs can be fitted with pilot hydraulic control systems or run the state-of-the-art automated drilling systems. Barminco has, in partnership with both Epiroc and Newlands and associates, developed industry leading mobile carrier rigs (MCRs), which offer quicker move times and are ideal for grade control type drilling, reducing costs and disruption to other mining operations.
