New generation Drill Rigs hit the Goldfields

The boom is on its way and we’re anticipating we’ll see a returning focus on productivity and safety but more specifically in tech advancement throughout the Goldfields region of Western Australia.

Pioneering its way through our forecast is Mine Master, a global machine manufacturing company paving the way for the underground world through their innovative drill rig designs.

Having launched a premise in Kalgoorlie-Boulder, the company will be catering to the specific needs of the Australian underground mining market from 2018.

Mine Master has been supplying equipment to the mining industry for over 40 years and specialise in the production and supply of underground mining equipment for underground drilling – drill rigs and roof-bolting rigs.

Take note of Mine Master’s recent launch – the ‘Face Master 2.5 NVDR’ Narrow Vein Drill rig.

Along with the fact their servicing department is a hop, skip and a jump away in Boulder, WA, Mine Master are tipped to be the saving grace to many local underground mine sites when it comes to combining productivity and innovation.

Some key highlights of the new generation narrow vein drill rig include the following:

– Drilling coverage 25m2

– 2-axial rotary actuator for superior maneuverability

– 360-degree roll-over on both planes – for safe replacement of drill bit from operator’s component

– Powerful hydro static tramming system – to drive at 14-degree angle

– Operators canopy – with lifting segment for better visibility during vertical drilling

– Central Oscillation main pivot – for excellent traction

– Automated main articulation lock – for extra stability during drilling

in addition, GHH Mine Master supply underground loaders and haulage machines produced by their German shareholder GHH and can provide their twin boom model FM2.3’s in short notice with a facility in the Goldfields region capable of back up and support.

To meet the expectations of their clients, the company created a professional group of specialists responsible for machine servicing.

The company offers full spare parts and service backup from Kalgoorlie Boulder.
