FEATURE ARTICLE – Surface Drilling

This month’s Spotlight Feature Article is focussed on surface drilling, including blasthole, coring and sonic methods. Showcased in the article are Boart Longyear’s LF™160 surface coring drill rig and FL262 Freedom™ Loader which were recently introduced into the African market. This combination the company says offers more control and oversight which means less interruption and a more efficient operation.
