Raise Bore Mining

A Safer, Faster and More Cost-Effective Way of Excavating Raises

Raise Boring is a powerful and precise way to excavate raises with smooth walls that don’t require finishing, making it the preferred method for creating ventilation shafts. Raise boring techniques are also used to excavate various raises and shafts for your civil construction projects.
