productive, technologically advanced equipment available, Barminco delivers
safe, flexible and cost-efficient performance.

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.
Barminco utilises an electronic plod and record keeping, cloud-based OS that can integrate into our clients’ systems. This ensures the highest quality of geological and production information is made immediately available to our clients, increasing transparency as drilling happens.
