Boart Longyear Drilling Services wins multi-site drilling contract with Phu Bia Mining in Laos

 

SALT LAKE CITY – July 18, 2017 — Mining companies are increasingly looking for ways to realize new cost efficiencies and achieve the safest most productive sites. One way to realize cost efficiencies is to combine drilling contracts so the mine is only managing one drilling contractor and has the opportunity to negotiate better rates for different drilling projects.

 

Boart Longyear currently works with PanAust Limited’s Lao-registered company, Phu Bia Mining, for grade control, horizontal drilling, surface coring, reverse circulation drilling, piezometer and water bore work at the company’s Phu Kham Copper-Gold Operation. The new contract includes all drilling at both Phu Kham  and the nearby Ban Houayxai Gold-Silver Operation.

Phu Bia Mining was seeking a partner that would enable them to safely achieve the highest efficiency. Boart Longyear has the safety track record, the technical expertise, proven results and the necessary crews and rigs to deliver for Phu Bia Mining and accepted productivity metrics as part of the agreement.

 

Boart Longyear operates a large fleet of rigs at both sites and provides a variety of drilling techniques, including diamond coring, reverse circulation and rigs for mine dewatering both large hole diameter water bores and horizontal drainage holes.

 

“This drilling agreement to do the drilling work at Phu Bia Mining’s operations in Laos is a great opportunity to achieve greater cost efficiencies inaccessible with traditional contracting that typically engages multiple contractors. Boart Longyear has the infrastructure, expertise, and people, to deliver the safe metres that Phu Bia Mining is looking for.” said Boart Longyear Country Manager, Kenneth Reid. “We are excited to partner with Phu Bia Mining and build on our great working relationship.”

 

Phu Kham Copper-Gold Operation

The Phu Kham Copper-Gold Operation is located within PanAust’s Phu Bia Mining Contract Area in Laos approximately 200 kilometres from the capital city, Vientiane. Phu Kham is PanAust’s flagship operation and the significant cash flow generated by the Phu Kham Operation has supported PanAust’s growth while contributing to a strong balance sheet.

 

Ban Houayxai Gold-Silver Operation

The award-winning Ban Houayxai Gold-Silver Operation is located approximately 25 kilometres west of Phu Kham and comprises an open-pit mine feeding ore to a conventional 4 million tonnes per annum carbon in leach (CIL) and gravity recovery process plant.

Boart Longyear Drilling Services offers fully hands-free drilling with LF™90D to mining clients

 

SALT LAKE CITY — June 13, 2017 — Mining companies increasingly expect drilling contractors to keep pace with their commitment for healthier and safer work sites for all employees. Manual rod handling hazards increase the risk of severe hand and back injuries within the drilling industry, and innovation that removes the driller from hazards associated with those risks is proven to make a difference in safety. To meet major mining’s increased safety requirements, Boart Longyear™ has engineered a fully hands-free drilling solution with its most popular surface coring rig – the LF™90D – in mining markets in North America, Africa and Asia. The in-house engineering teams in all three markets have been collaborating for the last several years and a number of rigs have now been retrofitted with this hands-free solution.

The LF90D utilizes a hollow spindle drill head, making it challenging for rod handling.  By retrofitting the rig with a tilting head mechanism and a customized FL262 FREEDOM Loader, Boart Longyear now offers a completely hands-free rod handling solution for the fleet of LF90D rigs.

The FREEDOM Loader also works with the LF™160 and the LF™350 surface coring rigs – additional surface coring rigs that offer completely hands-free rod handling.

“This is a significant safety enhancement for our clients and our drillers, as it removes the driller from multiple hazards associated with suspended loads and manually handling drilling rods. The new hands-free solution prevents back injuries, strains, pulls and hand injuries. This is another example of our commitment to provide healthier and safer work sites for both our clients and our employees,” said James Chalmers, Vice President of Environment, Health, Safety and Training.

Boart Longyear Launches Core Orientation Tool, TruCore™ in Africa

 

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah — May 16, 2017 — Boart Longyear (www.BoartLongyear.com) is proud to launch the TruCore™ core orientation system in Africa, following successful launches in Australia and Latin America last year and Canada earlier this year.  

 

“Over the past 127 years, Boart Longyear has continuously delivered innovative solutions for the drilling industry,” said Adam Tomaszewski, product manager, instrumentation for Boart Longyear. “TruCore is no exception. We’ve conducted extensive testing to ensure TruCore provides accurate data, is easy to use (whether you are underground or in bright sunlight), and enhances safety with less manual handling.”

 

TruCore addresses a variety of the challenges that drillers and geologists face while conducting core orientation:

  • When you need accurate data and cannot risk missed orientations
    TruCore has been optimized to ensure that the handheld device lets drillers know when to activate it. The built-in work flow requires the operator to re-confirm the correct orientation before proceeding with the next step. This minimizes the risk of missed orientations.
  • When you need an easy-to-use solution
    With its highly visible, flashing LEDs, TruCore notifies the user when there is direct alignment, which reduces the total measurement time and makes TruCore the ideal solution for bright daylight, lowlight and underground operations.
  • When you want to reduce manual handling time and increase safety
    There is no need to disassemble the TruCore tool to obtain an orientation mark. As a result, the number of manual handling actions a driller or driller assistant needs to perform is reduced.
  • When you want an alternative to the current market solution
    As a trusted supplier of drilling equipment and tooling for 127 years, Boart Longyear offers the first alternative solution in the marketplace for electronic core orientation. It is easy to switch and start using TruCore today.

TruCore is now available to rent in Africa in sizes BQ™ through PQ™.

 

To learn more about Boart Longyear’s TruCore core orientation system, visit www.boartlongyear.com/TruCore.   

 

About the Core Orientation Process

Core orientation is essential to the Mining & Resources sector, as it marks and determines the precise orientation and position of core while in the ground. This information helps determine faults, cleavages, joints, mineral lineation and other geophysical properties, which lead to better mapping for exploration and mine site development.

SALT LAKE CITY – February 28, 2017 – Boart Longyear (www.BoartLongyear.com), the world’s leading provider of drilling services, equipment, performance tooling and instrumentation will feature a broad range of innovative drilling services solutions at this year’s PDAC International Convention, Trade Show and Investors Exchange, March 5-8, in Toronto, Canada.

 

“Our experienced drilling services team has been setting the industry standard for more than 125 years, and we’re proud to highlight their capabilities at PDAC,” said Mark Irwin, chief commercial officer for Boart Longyear. “We look forward to speaking to customers about a wide range of drilling services solutions including sonic drilling, rod handling and production drilling.”

 

Sonic drilling services
Sonic drilling provides a continuous, relatively undisturbed core sample of unparalleled quality and accuracy through any type of formation. Boart LongyearTM sonic rigs and crews can reach depths over 700 feet (213 meters).

 

Common applications for sonic drilling include heap leach pad recovery, grade control sampling, and pre-collaring. Sonic drilling advances a temporary outer casing as the borehole is drilled, allowing more to be accomplished with a single borehole. Sonic drilling reduces waste, and can be up to two to three times faster than conventional overburden drilling.

 

Totally hands-free rod handling
Boart Longyear drilling services is proud to utilize rod handling technology for optimal safety on a range of drill rigs. Boart Longyear’s latest LF™160 drill rig, paired with the FL262 FREEDOM™ Loader will be showcased virtually at the show. Boart Longyear’s products division in partnership with drilling services has combined proven technology from its most popular surface coring drill rigs to create the powerful LF™160. When paired with the FL262 FREEDOM™ Loader, the combination is ideal for mining exploration clients who stipulate some of the highest safety standards, without compromising on productivity.

 

Production drilling services
Our drilling service teams are dedicated to delivering safe, fast and effective production drilling by using pneumatic/hydraulic down-the-hole or top hammer methods for slot and inverse raises, long-hole drill and blast, V-30 drilling and cable bolt drilling.

 

Health and Safety in Mineral Exploration

For the sixth year in a row, Boart Longyear’s global EHS and training manager, Brian Maeck, will be presenting at the PDAC Health and Safety in Mineral Exploration Short Course. Maeck’s presentation will take place on Saturday, March 4 and cover the basics of drilling, associated hazards and controls, Boart Longyear’s safety programs and safety culture.

SALT LAKE CITY – February 16, 2017 – Boart Longyear (www.BoartLongyear.com), the world’s leading provider of drilling services, equipment and performance tooling, will highlight a broad range of products and technologies at this year’s PDAC International Convention, Trade Show and Investors Exchange, March 5-8, in Toronto, Canada.

 

“We are looking forward to talking with PDAC attendees about some of our most recent product innovations,” said Monika Portman, director of product management and marketing. “For more than 125 years, we have been focused on developing products suited for a variety of applications that help clients work safer and more productively. We’re excited to feature these products and solutions at PDAC 2017.”

 

Boart Longyear’s subject matter experts will be on hand during the show at booth 101 to talk about the following products:

 

LF™160 Drill Rig & FL262 FREEDOM™ Loader
Created with customers’ needs in mind, the LF™160 surface coring rig is one of the first completely hands-free rod handling solutions with an optional rod loader. The LF™160 rig paired with the FREEDOM Loader™ is ideal for contractors who want to target sophisticated surface drilling exploration contracts with clients that stipulate some of the highest safety standards.

 

MDR700
The MDR700 underground coring mobile drill rig is a powerful rig that utilizes proven Boart Longyear underground exploration technology, such as the LM™ 700 feed frame. This rig offers wide drilling angles; quick and easy setup, operation, and maintenance; advanced mobility; and engineered safety controls. Combined with the optional DCi, digital control interface, contractors have a fully electronic interface to safely and efficiently operate from a distance with one-touch rod feed and pull functionality along with data logging.

LM™110 Underground Rig
The LM™110 was designed as a modular drill rig with a number of options for site-specific customization. An optional rod handler can be added to the LM™110, which greatly increases safety by locating the driller away from moving parts.

 

Performance Tooling
Boart Longyear’s performance tooling is specifically engineered for long life and high performance while boasting best-in-industry safety features. The tooling serves a wide range of applications and is available for diamond coring and reverse circulation drilling applications.

 

TruCore™
The first product in Boart Longyear’s instrumentation line, TruCore™ enables drillers to easily provide the accurate data and results that mining clients count on. As a trusted supplier of drilling equipment and tooling for more than 125 years, Boart Longyear is proud to offer the first alternative solution in the marketplace for electronic core orientation.
