PRESS RELEASE: With the theme of the congress focusing on sustainability and productivity, Boart Longyear said it will be displaying several new products and services that can increase safety, reduce wear, lessen environmental impact and improve cost-effectiveness for exploration projects.
 
Among other things, the company will present its line of Longyear diamond coring bits, which are designed to improve shift performance and ultimately put more core in the box. 
 
Additionally, it will feature the new XQ wireline coring rod, which has an innovative self-aligning thread start geometry to ensure mating threads engage smoothly, without wedging or jamming. Smooth starting, in combination with case hardening, can significantly improve productivity and wear life.
 
Boart Longyear is known for its drilling rigs, rod-handling equipment and performance tooling. In recent years, the company has also introduced its own line of downhole instrumentation to provide accurate and timely data to geologists and mining companies.
 
During Expomin, Boart Longyear Drilling Services professionals will also be on hand to answer questions about the company's range of drilling services, capabilities and fleet of equipment.
