IDS LLC utilizes Accu-Dril and Steering Tool at Australia's Elura Mine

Pilot Holes for Raise Bores

IDS LLC utilized the 2-7/8" Accu-Dril® and Steering Tool to drill and remain inside a 12" cylinder for 1312' at Australia's Elura Mine. Gyroscopic surveys were taken every 20 feet. While drilling the pilot hole, everu time the hole would deviate off course the Accu-Dril® motor with its Bent Housing would be run into the hole to steer the hole back on course. Later a Pilot Hole was drilled in Queensland, Australia at the Mt. Isa Mine using the same tools and methods staying inside a 6" cylinder for 1969 feet.
