Vertical Expertise That Improves Your Bottom Line

In mine development and expansion, vertical raises are crucial for egress routes, ventilation, hauling, and ore access. Our expertise with Raise Boring and Alimak raises ensures safe, effective, and timely results for a variety of outcomes.

Raise boring is a continuous, mechanical method of excavating vertical or near-vertical holes between two levels of an underground mine, and is widely considered a safer, faster and more cost-effective way of excavating raises than more traditional drilling and blasting methods.
