Due to the great depths and unpredictable natural deviation in the area, AGC mines in Portugal had problems delineating their reserves in a systematic pattern. Failures to hit the targets and miss the ore zones lead to higher exploration expenses than necessary.

“Having the Devico crew on site helps us to hit our planned targets at depths down to 1,300 meters in an environment where drill hole deviation is difficult to predict. We would not be able to target accurately without it.”
