Drilling Services Receives Gold Supplier Award from Robinson Mine
Boart Longyear was recently invited to an awards luncheon hosted by KGHM Robinson Mine. KGHM annually reviews their 30 top contractors per annual spend and if they pass on safety and environmental, scores them on cost, quality, delivery, and service. A contractor had to score 95% or higher to receive an award. Only five companies met these conditions for 2017, and Boart Longyear was extremely proud to be one of them.
KGHM is a great client to work with and we value our partnership with them. We currently drill dewatering wells, RC exploration, pump rehab work, piezometer and monitor wells, and hope to soon be performing core exploration for them.
- Jason Lamb, US/Mexico Commercial Manager
Congratulations to all of the crews and leadership that played a part in earning this great achievement and recognition from our client!
The Robinson mine is located in White Pine County, Nevada, USA, in the Egan Range. The mine is comprised of 3 large pits: Liberty (mining re-commenced in 2004, KGHM acquired in 2012), Tripp-Veteran (closed) and Ruth, currently in operation. The mine’s beginnings can be traced back to 1876. Since then, with some minor breaks, copper, gold and silver and recently molybdenum have been extracted. KGHM INTERNATIONAL LTD. acquired the mine in April 2004. Mining is conducted by conventional open-pit methods. It comprises extraction using blasting materials and dump trucks, loading and ore transport to a processing plant. The ore is crushed and then subjected to flotation. The acquired concentrate is thickened and filtered.
