We’ve Been Drilling For Nearly 50 Years

We have successfully completed projects which have included: 6’ diameter raises to a total depth of 2,250 feet; 9’ diameter to 1,800 feet; 12’diameter to 1,250 feet; 16.5’ diameter to 1,540 feet; 20’ diameter to 2,000 feet, just to mention a few. Our complete line of equipment ( including high pressure air compressors, generators, rig-up trucks, etc.) and our strong financial position which enables us to bond our work, give us the capability to perform complete turn-key surface or underground shafts, including steel- or concrete lining, without relying on assistance from our customers or other construction companies.

We would be very pleased to be added to your bidders list for any future projects that would encompass our raiseboring capabilities. We invite your inquiry and will provide cost estimates, as requested.
