This drilling programme in Central Otago was conducted in the middle of winter.

The remote sites were under Historic Places restrictions, and we were able to conduct the drilling within the strict environmental requirements, leaving no footprint on demobilising. We used tracked Marooka rigs which proved ideal for access to these sites in winter conditions.

We have also built and supplied a small air-core rig for ongoing drilling in the area. This rig was custom built for the client, and is able to drill to 70m.
