Drills designed for exploration - Are you an explorer?
"Exploration is a cost/benefit business. Expensive high-precision core drilling is often used when low-precision low-cost rotary drilling would suffice.
In the Atacama Project we spent $3 million on wide-spaced rotary drill holes. If we had used core holes our budget would have run out when less than half the holes were drilled including those that found the Escondida and Zaldivar orebodies. The same logic applies to all other exploration costs.”

Here at Northspan, we design our own RC and rotary drills. Our drills are backed by over 30 years of design and field experience. “Light-weight, powerful and adaptable” are words that we live by.
Our drills work. They have become tools of choice for both junior and major explorers.
The Hornet RC drill is quick and easy to move. Because it was designed for first pass exploration drilling it often tests several targets per day. This means you can drill more, leaving fewer targets untested.
Nowadays explorers use the Hornet at every stage of the exploration cycle. With the Hornet RC drill you too can take the guess-work out of your exploration.
