Drilling Optimisation
Mitigating Factors & Changing Environment
– Deeper Average Hole Depth.
– Higher at Rig Safety Standards.
– Greater Environmental & Cultural Restrictions.
– Post Bre-Ex, greater verifiable data requirements (Core Orientation, Borehole
Surveys, etc.) and JORC or equivalent compliance.
– Generally higher QA/QC standards
– Only Incremental Technical Innovation in Drilling Standards & Practices.
Cost of Drilling has been increasing
Confidential
DRILLING OPTIMISATION WORKFLOW
The Complete Solution
Continually improving results through the Plan, Drill, Monitor and Decision cycle.
Confidential
Rig Alignment at it’s best!
• Fast, accurate and repeatable
rig alignment
• Surface and underground operations
REFLEX TN14 GYROCOMPASS ™
REFLEX GYRO SPRINT-IQ™
• Seeks True North, surveys all angles,
no risk of magnetic interference
• Operates in continuous, single shot,
multi shot and overshot modes
• Real-time results through the
IMDEXHUB-IQ™
REFLEX ROTA-LOCK OVERSHOT ™
When coupled with the REFLEX ROTA-
LOCK OVERSHOT™, this provides accurate
survey data at fast speeds in a patented
purpose built overshot, whilst providing
instant access to results through the
cloud-based IMDEXHUB-IQ™.
No additional service providers
required on site
REFLEX GYRO SPRINT-IQ™
+ REFLEX ROTA-LOCK OVERSHOT ™
Confidential
Have Visibility over your fleet
IMDEX MOBILE™ DDR
• Collection of daily drill reports,
safety forms and survey
information
• Complete visibility of drilling
operations
• More efficient drilling means
quicker projects
• Resource clients can receive
verified project /cost reports as
their project progresses
Confidential
The AMC BOS™
The AMC BOS™ is a patent pending,
proactive solution – consisting of the
AMC BOS UNIT™ and AMC BOS FIX™
for fluid losses, borehole instability
and torque control, significantly
improving the productivity and safety
of wire-line drilling operations.
AMC COREWELL™ AMC PLUG™AMC EZEE TROL™AMC EZEE PAC R™
Additional functionality
 Enhances core recovery
and sample quality
 Increases viscosity for
cuttings removal, water
loss control (depending on
ground type)
 Increases viscosity for
cuttings removal, water
loss control (depending
on ground type)
 Enhances fluid loss or
lost circulation control
for larger fracture zones
AMC ROD GREASE™
 Enhances torque control
 Reduces cement/grouting costs – Reduced costs such as vacuum truck, fluids,
and consumables for a cementing/grouting up to 77% in Arizona, USA
 Reduces drilling fluid costs – Reduced average cost (per foot) for drilling fluid
products up to 18% in Arizona, USA and up to 36% in Alturas, Chile
 Reduces water consumption – 32% reduction in water consumption (per metre
drilled) in Alturas, Chile
 Reduces rig down time – Saved up to 4 days avoiding grouting/cementing on
one borehole in Arizona, USA
 Minimises the need for cementing/grouting, casing and/or lost circulation
materials – saves up to 48hrs lost time cementing/grouting, which generally
has a success rate of 50%
 Improves productivity – can improve productivity by up to 20%
Key Results
