Easternwell provides drilling services for Newcrest Mining

Easternwell has signed a contract with Newcrest Mining, one of the world's largest underground gold mining companies, to provide drilling services at their Cadia Valley Operations Mine Site in New South Wales.

The contract involves Easternwell’s Rig 103 drilling four directional wells to depths of 1550 meters.

Specialising in production and coring wells, the rig is capable of directional and pad drilling, as well as under-balanced air drilling and coring, making it a versatile and efficient solution for varying operational requirements.

Easternwell General Manager Kyle Koziol said: “We look forward to working with Newcrest Mining on this exciting project.”

“The experience of our drilling team and the versatility of the rig make us well suited to the challenging drilling conditions of the volcanic rock formations that we are seeing on this project.”
