It’s never been easier

As the world economy recovers, renewed interest is being focused on underground exploration. The availability of highly skilled drill rig operators is no longer a prerequisite for success.

Since fully hydraulic drill rigs were launched in the early 1970s no significant advancements in exploration drilling technology occurred until Atlas Copco put computers into the control system in 1997. Now, seven years later, the rate of development is more than noticeable, especially in terms of higher productivity at lower operating costs.
