Boart Longyear has plans to present a broad range of underground, surface, multipurpose, sonic and production drilling rigs; performance tooling; and the first two products in the company’s instrumentation line, TruCore and TruShot, at MINExpo in Las Vegas, Sept. 26 to 28. 

“As a world leader in the drilling products and services industry, presenting at an international show like MINExpo is critical to growing our business,” says Kent Hoots, senior vice president, global products. “We are looking forward to having a number of our drill rigs on site this year to show the value of our products to existing and new customers.”

Boart Longyear’s product experts will be available and all products listed below will be on display at booth 2603 in the North Hall.

Underground Coring

The LM110 was designed as a modular drill rig with a number of options for site-specific customization. An optional rod handler can be added to the LM110, which increases safety by locating the driller away from moving parts.

The DCi provides drilling contractors a fully electronic interface to safely and efficiently operate underground drilling equipment, such as the LM series, via an independent, lightweight control panel. The LM75, LM90, LM110 and MDR700 rigs are compatible with the DCi system. The DCi increases safety on-site by moving the driller away from moving parts and hydraulic hoses.

Surface Coring

The LF160 surface coring rig is one of the first completely hands-free rod handling solutions with an optional rod loader. The LF160 rig paired with the Freedom Loader is ideal for contractors who want to target sophisticated surface drilling exploration contracts with clients that stipulate the highest safety standards.

Sonic Drilling

LS250 MiniSonic

The recently-launched LSTM250 MiniSonicTM is a compact sonic rig that provides an overall safer working environment for drillers. The rig is ideally suited for a wide range of environmental and infrastructure drilling applications, including difficult-to-reach drill sites.

Production Drilling

The StopeMaster is designed for superior access, mobility, flexibility and productivity to meet the unique challenges of narrow vein and other underground mining applications, using a hydraulic rock drill.

Coring Performance Tooling

Roller Latch Quick Pump-In Underground Head Assembly: Allowing for greater pump-in speed and productivity while utilizing large rollers for latching and hold-back braking to retain inner-tube assemblies in the drill string, the Roller Latch head assembly makes for dramatically safer, more productive, operations.

A full lineup of diamond bits that are designed for a wide range of drilling needs are available. The 10UMX Diamond Bit series is a combination of synthetic diamonds and an advanced formulation, which make it the ideal choice for the very hardest rock formations. Our UMX Diamond Bits are a versatile line of diamond coring bits that uses patent-pending technology.

Top Hammer Tooling

Boart Longyear offers a complete selection of rods and bits to provide solutions for any top hammer drilling application. With a complete range of shank adaptors, Boart Longyear top hammer tooling works with most rigs on the market.


The first product in Boart Longyear’s instrumentation line, TruCore core orientation system enables drillers to provide the accurate data and the results mining clients count on with ease.

Designed for the drill site, the TruShot magnetic survey tool provides wireless communication in a robust, user-friendly configuration. TruShot will be launched in Australia later this year.
