Location: Bay of Plenty

Muirs Reef has long been an area of interest for gold, with mining on the reef until the 1930’s. This project has involved drilling a number of exploration holes near the reef on a mix of farmland and forest blocks.

On our most recent sites we have been using an XHD1150 wireline core rig mounted on a Marooka. This rig with a Marooka based rod carrier have proven to be essential for accessing difficult sites in forested areas of the reef, particularly during the winter months while ground conditions were challenging.
