RISE OF THE RAISE BORE DIVISION

July 10, 2017

Since 2014, PYBAR’s Raise Bore Division has undergone significant growth with our experienced and skilled crews completing multiple projects throughout Australia and off shore, and successfully drilling over 4,000m to date.

Our current capability range from 1.1m diameter boxhole slot rigs to 7m diameter shaft rigs capable of reaming 1,000m deep shafts.

PYBAR’s Raise Bore Fleet

Atlas Copco Easer L – 1000V Hydraulic Drive Machine

The Atlas Copco Easer L is a compact dual purpose rig specifically designed to drill both conventional rises and boxhole slots rises while maintaining a low profile.

Its capabilities span production slot rises in block cave, sub level caving and sub level stoping mines to drilling precondition holes, paste fill holes, drain holes and escape ways. 

Reaming capability: 750mm up-hole slots, 750mm down-hole slots and 1.1m conventional rises for escape ways with deviation less than 1%.

Redbore 40 SDR – 1000V Hydraulic Drive Machine

The Redbore 40 is a small, compact rig designed primarily for production slot rises and escape way rises.  It is a simple and straightforward hydraulic drive machine which makes it an ideal rig for delivering value and productivity.

Reaming capability: 1.1m to 1.5m diameter rises, up to 183m in length.

Redbore 50 MDUR – 1000V Electric Drive Machine

The Redbore 50 MDUR is a compact dual purpose rig specifically designed for conventional rises and boxhole slot rises while maintaining a low profile.

Reaming capability: 1.1m to 1.5m diameter up-hole slots up to 60m in length and conventional rises up to 2.1m in diameter and up to 183m in length

SBM 450 – 1000V Hydraulic Drive Machine

The SBM 450 is a compact dual purpose rig specifically designed for conventional rises and boxhole slot rises while maintaining a low profile.

Reaming capability: 700mm diameter up-hole slots up to 60m in length and conventional rises up to 2.4m diameter and 350m in length.

Atlas Copco 61RH – 1000V Hydraulic Drive Machine

The Atlas Copco 61RH is a powerful, compact and lightweight raise bore designed to fit in smaller underground excavations.

Reaming capability: 1.4m to 3.0m diameter rises, up to 350m in length.

SBM 800 – 1000V Hydraulic Drive Machine

The SBM 800 is a large diameter raise bore ideally suited for surface and underground ventilation raises, shafts and ore passes.

The rig is a compact lightweight design which fits into smaller underground excavations to ream large diameter rises.

Reaming capability: 4.0m to 6.0m diameter, rises up to 600m in length.

RBR600-VF – 1000V Electric (VF) Drive Machine

The RBR600-VF is a large diameter raise bore ideally suited for surface and underground ventilation raises, shafts and ore passages.

The RBR600-VF features a PLC system, allowing unprecedented control over the drilling process. The drilling operation is fully compatible with directional drilling technology, allowing the drill to deliver vertical excavation when needed.

Reaming capability: 4.0m to 7.0m diameter rises, up to 1,000m in length.
