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™.

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.
