Action Drill & Blast (ADB) has been our contractor of choice for nearly 5 years at Isaac Plains mine. During this time, ADB has proven to be highly competent and progressive drill and blast experts that consistently supply a high calibre team. ADB is also a relationship based company and are always looking to improve their processes and blasting efficiencies and add value for their client, and they have become an integral part of our site’s performance.
Action Drill & Blast has been the site overburden drilling contractor at Jellinbah Mine for over three years and were recently awarded a contract for a further four years.
They have always met or exceeded our drilling targets and provided a stable and professional workforce with a clear focus on safety and continuous improvement.
Since starting on site they have been able to improve all aspects of their work including drill rig availability, penetration rates, and control of respirable dust.
Action Drill & Blast (ADB) has a very good safety culture, flexible workforce and have met Yancoal’s metre expectations on all occasions.
Since commencing on the Project ADB has been able to improve in all areas across the site with increased production, quality drill holes, dust control and a very good safety record. I would recommend ADB to any Client to assist with their drilling requirements.
Having spent more than 35 years in the mining industry working with many specialist drill and blast companies I can confidently say that Action Drill & Blast has been one of the best. The business provided a professional, diligent and highly skilled team that I refer to as ‘low maintenance’ – they just get on with it. Performance both with safety and production was excellent largely due to a comprehensive maintenance, training competency and technical support program that delivered results.
