Epiroc is proud to announce that it will be launching two products at the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) 2024, held from March 3-6, 2024, in Toronto, Canada.

Epiroc, a leading global productivity partner for the mining and infrastructure industries, will launch two new products at the Metropolitan Toronto Convention Centre (MTCC) during PDAC 2024: the Arrow 3S Overshot Click Release and the Christensen 160 Smart drill rig.

What to expect at PDAC 2024

The first innovation that will be demonstrated to PDAC attendees at booth #723 is the Arrow 3S Click Release, a new spring-loaded release sleeve that offers improved reliability and safety when drillers need to release the overshot in the borehole. By pulling on the wireline 5-6 times the overshot will disengage, a functionality that saves significant amounts of time by eliminating the need for rod pulls.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to learn about the Christensen 160 Smart, a heli-portable rig with easy-to-assemble modules that is now exclusively available in Canada. Created for easy and fast assembly upon arrival at the drill site, this innovation maintains high quality and power while keeping the weight as low as possible. This facilitates the transport process, keeps flight costs to a minimum, and maximizes drilling time.

‘We’re very excited to launch not one, but two solutions that will provide our clients with the best tools and equipment for the job. Both the Christensen 160 Smart, our very first data-empowered surface core drill rig, and the Click Release for the Arrow 3S overshot, a must-have tool to stay productive, are great displays of how Epiroc is accelerating the transformation,’ said Luca Arnaldi, Global Product Line Manager – Exploration Consumables, at Epiroc.

Fordia Powered by Epiroc will also be featured in the corporate booth #723 as part of the Epiroc brand, showcasing their range of diamond drilling bits. As a world-class manufacturer of diamond tools and equipment for the mineral exploration and geotechnical sectors, Fordia is known for the high-quality products and outstanding customer service that it provides.
