A COMPLETE RAISE BORING CAPABILITY

FROM STANDARD RAISE BORES TO ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL RIGS IN AUSTRALIA

PYBAR’s raise boring capacity ranges from standard boxhole rigs to one of the most powerful raise bore rigs on the market. This means we have the optimum solution for any size project, supported by technical expertise.

PYBAR provides conventional raise boring, boxhole slot drilling and down hole reaming for ventilation and ore production applications.

Capabilities include:

  • conventional raises and shafts up to eight metres in diameter
  • production boxholes
  • service holes and equipping.

Our fleet includes track mounted raise drills and mobile rig carriers which allow for the independent relocation of raise bores within mines and improves operator safety.

PYBAR also provides equipment to remove raise cuttings for a total independent solution.

Herrenknecht RBR600-VF

PYBAR has one of the most powerful raise bore rigs in Australia. The Herrenknecht RBR600-VF has the capacity to construct shafts from 2.4 metres to 8 metres in diameter, and up to 1,000 metres in length. This makes it one of only two rigs in Australia with greater than 6 metre capacity.

The RBR600-VF is also one of the most efficient rigs on the market due to its variable frequency drive. Whether utilising mains power or generators, its power consumption can be up to half of that of an equivalent capacity machine with hydraulic drive, potentially saving many thousands of dollars on power bills.
