Deep or problematic drill holes are often of major concern to exploration and mining development. Satisfactory results in these conditions cannot always be guaranteed. Ground conditions such as broken and caving formations, sheer zones, pressure zones, washouts, lost circulation and so on are often battled with for some time using various methods. If results are negative the drill hole has either to be cased off and reduced or if not practicable, abandoned. Consequently explorers and miners are less inclined to tackle drill projects of this possible nature resulting in ore bodies not being proved or a viable mining venture not realised.
VAN RUTH® equipment has a worldwide reputation of 50 Years dealing with many problems encountered in today's mining environments with an ongoing commitment to mine safety. Hole condition is of paramount importance to trouble free drilling and lower operating costs.
