PDAC 2017: Boart Longyear to Highlight Broad Range of Drilling Products

Boart Longyear (, the world's leading provider of drilling services, equipment and performance tooling, will highlight a broad range of products and technologies at this year's PDAC International Convention, Trade Show and Investors Exchange, March 5-8, in Toronto, Canada.

"We are looking forward to talking with PDAC attendees about some of our most recent product innovations," said Monika Portman, director of product management and marketing. "For more than 125 years, we have been focused on developing products suited for a variety of applications that help clients work safer and more productively. We're excited to feature these products and solutions at PDAC 2017."

Boart Longyear's subject matter experts will be on hand during the show at booth 101 to talk about the following products:

LF™160 Drill Rig & FL262 FREEDOM™ Loader

Created with customers' needs in mind, the LF™160 surface coring rig is one of the first completely hands-free rod handling solutions with an optional rod loader. The LF™160 rig paired with the FREEDOM Loader™ is ideal for contractors who want to target sophisticated surface drilling exploration contracts with clients that stipulate some of the highest safety standards.


The MDR700 underground coring mobile drill rig is a powerful rig that utilizes proven Boart Longyear underground exploration technology, such as the LM™ 700 feed frame. This rig offers wide drilling angles; quick and easy setup, operation, and maintenance; advanced mobility; and engineered safety controls. Combined with the optional DCi, digital control interface, contractors have a fully electronic interface to safely and efficiently operate from a distance with one-touch rod feed and pull functionality along with data logging.

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.

Performance Tooling

Boart Longyear's performance tooling is specifically engineered for long life and high performance while boasting best-in-industry safety features. The tooling serves a wide range of applications and is available for diamond coring and reverse circulation drilling applications.


The first product in Boart Longyear's instrumentation line, TruCore™ enables drillers to easily provide the accurate data and results that mining clients count on. 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 electronic core orientation.
