Experience Makes All the Difference

A Core Expertise

We built our reputation on shaft sinking. Since the 1980s we’ve sunk various diameters, from 13 to 26 feet in a wide range of geologies and conditions, both shallow and deep. We are experienced with difficult conditions and geologies in project sites around the world. DMC Mining Services is also proud to work with local cultures and resources.
