Rods are some of the many products available in the Wytheville warehouse

The Boart Longyear Wytheville facility will be stocked with the following products:

  • NQ, NQ-2, HQ, HQ-3 PQ & PQ-3-series coring equipment

  • Sonic rods, core barrels, bits, casing, and shoes

  • Top hammer (percussive) tooling products for both surface and underground applications

Of growing interest to customers is the successful line of Longyear™ diamond coring bits which are proven to drill faster, last longer, and outperform existing bit technologies.

Additionally, innovations in coring rod technology have created a greater demand for XQ™ wireline coring rods. These rods last twice as long as previous rod designs due to their increased strength and self-aligning thread-start geometry — ensures mating threads engage quickly and smoothly.

Customers in the eastern or central United States can now place orders by calling
