Boart Longyear to Showcase Broad Range of Rigs, Drills, Performance Tooling and First Instrumentation Product at Expomin

SALT LAKE CITY – Boart Longyear (, the world's leading provider of drilling services, equipment and performance tooling, will use Expomin - from April 25 to 29 in Santiago, Chile - to showcase its broad range of underground, multipurpose and geotechnical rigs; drills; performance tooling; and the first product in the company's instrumentation line, TruCore™.

"Expomin is an essential show in the Latin American mining industry if you want to have conversations with the sector's key players," said Hans Glaessner, Sales Director - Americas. "We are looking forward to presenting some of our latest product innovations and talking with current and future customers."

Boart Longyear's product experts will be on hand during Expomin stand at 702 - 802 1B to showcase the following products:

    --  LM™110 Underground Rig: The LM™110 was designed as a modular drill

        rig with a number of options for site-specific customization. An

        optional rod handler can be added to the LM™110, which greatly

        increases safety by locating the driller away from moving parts.

    --  LX™6 Rig: A multipurpose geotechnical rig that is capable of wireline

        and conventional coring, the LX™6 features powerful steel crawlers

        that allow it to travel on difficult terrain and drill anywhere.

    --  LS™250 MiniSonic™: The recently launched LS™250 MiniSonic™

        is a mid-sized sonic rig that provides an overall safer working

        environment for drillers. The rig is ideally suited for a wide range of

        environmental and infrastructure drilling applications, including

        difficult-to-reach drill sites.

    --  StopeMate™: Developed with the end user in mind, the StopeMate™

        pneumatic production drill is extremely compact and is capable of

        drilling 51mm to 76mm holes, accommodates drilling depths of 12 to 25m

        and can be quickly disassembled and reassembled to gain access to

        captive areas.

    --  StopeMaster™: Larger than the StopeMate™, the StopeMaster™ is

        made for bulk mining applications. It allows for superior access,

        mobility, flexibility and productivity to meet the unique challenges of

        narrow vein and other underground mining applications.

    --  S250 Rock Drill: A hand-held, pneumatic rock drill that ensures maximum

        production in development and stoping applications. The S250 features

        precision leg controls, a lightweight design and optional acoustic

        baffles that reduce operator fatigue. It is available in several

        configurations, including the Jackleg, Stoper and Sinker.

    --  BLH™ Down the Hole (DTH) Hammer Series: The BLH™ down the hole

        hammer and bit series increases productivity in reverse circulation

        drilling and conventional drilling, and can be used for geotechnical

        drilling, quarrying/mining, water well/geothermal and mineral

        exploration. Available in both valved (BLH5 and BLH3) and valve-less

        (BLH1) models, the series provides high performance, outstanding

        reliability, simplicity and low operating costs.

    --  TruCore™ Core Orientation System: The first product in Boart

        Longyear's instrumentation line, TruCore™ enables drillers to provide

        the accurate data and the results mining clients count on, while

        decreasing spend on consumables. As a trusted supplier of drilling

        equipment and tooling for more than 125 years, Boart Longyear is proud

        to offer the first alternative solution in the marketplace for core
