The underground exploration drilling rig will be used by Drilling Site No. 2 for works at Mine No. 8 of the Priargunsky Industrial Mining and Chemical Union (E.P. Slavsky PIMCU, PJSC, part of ARMZ Uranium Holding Co.). The new BDU-600 rig capacity allows drilling underground exploration wells over 1 km deep.
Drilling Site No. 2 was arranged in 2009 to perform works for E.P. Slavsky PIMCU, PJSC. The main activity of the drilling site is the mining exploration from underground mine workings and the drilling of process blast holes for the Urtuysky opencast mine. During their work, the experts from RUSBURMASH, JSC have mastered 7 types of drilling techniques from underground mine workings and 5 types of drilling techniques from the surface, which makes it possible to cover all the drilling needs of the uranium mining enterprise.
