The LMT110 Is Introduced as the Most Powerful Underground Boart

LongyearT Diamond Coring Drill Rig

SALT LAKE CITY, March 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Boart Longyear

(www.BoartLongyear.com), the world's leading provider of integrated

drilling services, equipment and performance tooling, has expanded

their line of underground LMT modular diamond drill rigs to include

the new LM110. Ideal for drilling deep holes, the LM110 is the most

powerful Boart Longyear underground diamond coring drill rig to date.

Equipped with a 110-kilowatt power pack, the LM110 delivers up to 33

percent more torque at the drill head than the LM90 - which was

previously Boart Longyear's most powerful underground diamond drill

rig. Also featuring a 128 kN feed frame, the LM110 provides high

pullback force and a fast rod-handling rate, which allows for

increased drilling productivity.

"Our underground drilling customers requested a drill that could

provide more torque at the drill head," said Justin Warren, senior

product manager for Boart Longyear. "The LM110 provides contractors

with more power featuring the proven technology of our LM line of

drill rigs."

The LM series includes the LM30SS, LM55, LM75, LM90 and now the LM110.

The rigs range from small-compact to robust drills that use an

electronic control system. LM rigs provide reliable, high-performance

deep-hole drilling and are economical to own and maintain because of

their modular design.

The LM rigs are made up of five modular units: a power pack, feed

frame, rotation unit, foot clamp and controller. The components can be

interchanged to adapt to customer requirements as their needs change.

"Because of the modular nature of the LM series, Boart Longyear can

provide the 110-kilowatt power pack as an upgrade kit to customers

that already own an LM series drill rig, providing a more cost

effective option than purchasing a complete new drill," added Warren.

The LM110 can be outfitted with a rod handler and the Drill Control

InterfaceT (DCiT) for enhanced safety, hands-free making or breaking

of joints, and semi-autonomous drilling.
