The Exploration department at Boliden has had a long-term collaboration with Devico since the early days of development of the DeviDrill. Most recently, Devico have successfully aided Boliden, with directional drilling, in the development of the new Strömfors mineralization.
Using directional drilling with Devico is cost-benefit since it limits the amount of necessary diamond drill meters. However, what is more important for us is that we intersect the planned targets in a timely manner and with precision. This allows a flow in the project without unnecessary delays due to deviating drill holes.
The work together between Devico and Boliden continues throughout 2021 as exploration drilling will intensify on the Strömfors project.
