DIAMOND DRILLERS ASSISTANT, Timmins, ON - 27 January 2017
Typically a 10 foot section of core would be extracted with wire line approximately every hour. My day would consist of switching inner tubes and emptying core from the extracted tube. Although I had some freedom between drill runs it was my job to keep the drill area and supply pump clean and well maintained. I would also operate a robotic rod manipulator to extract and stack the drill rods in 30 foot sections during bit changes.
