Dull is the New Black

Program 1 Researcher Andrew Wurst (Boart Longyear) on site during the recent Port Augusta trials.

The RoXplorer® Rig and CT drilling ‘system’ performed excellently.  It is a revelation to watch rapid drilling with no rotation, no-one near the drill string, no rod handling and no fluids on the surface.  When going well it is wonderfully dull.  When tripping in and out of the hole it is wonderfully quick.
