A key feature of the StopeMate is the ability to drill a complete drop raise pattern from a single position, ensuring parallel holes which is a critical consideration in longhole drilling, where straight holes mean less dilution and more productivity.
S36 IR ROCK DRILL
The driving force behind the StopeMate is the S36 Independent Rotation Pneumatic Rock Drill, a powerful 114 mm (4.49 in) diameter bore drifter-type drill designed for deep hole drilling. In favorable ground conditions, the S36 IR can drill 37 m (122 ft).
FULLY PNEUMATIC OPERATION
Ideal for captive areas and narrow vein mining.
MODULAR DESIGN WITH EFFICIENT DISMANTLING AND REASSEMBLY
Can be transported rapidly even into captive areas, decreasing move time and increasing productivity.
High performance drilling regardless of varying operator skill levels or conditions. Decreased maintenance costs with routine maintenance being done in the stope and increased time between scheduled preventive maintenance.
Boart Longyear - StopeMate™
1. COMPACT AND MOBILE
Able to tram through a 1.27 m x 1.9 m opening. Back height drilling can be as low as 2.44 m (8 ft). It can fit in most cages without disassembly. Fully pneumatic operation is ideal for captive areas.
2. ACCURACY AND FLEXIBILITY
Optional Helac Positioning System delivers full 360° radius drilling with extreme accuracy. The Travers pivots more than 180° in tight spaces without ever moving the carrier. Capable of parallel drilling, ring drilling, service holes, drop raises, and cable bolting.
3. POWERFUL AND EFFICIENT
The Stopemate uses the S36 a powerful 114 mm (4.49 in) diameter bore drifter-type drill designed for deep hole drilling. The S36 can drill up to 37 m (122 ft) in ideal ground conditions.
Efficient dismantling and re-assembly enables faster move times and increased productivity.
