“Raglan Drilling has provided a high standard of RC and AC drilling to OzAurum Resources Ltd over the last 12 months drilling over 30,000m of RC and 45,000m of AC all completed in a safe and cost-efficient manner. Raglan has also been LTI free for these 12 months of drilling at OzAurum sites that is a credit to Gus and Hugo Lacey and their team of dedicated staff. Raglan operates a fleet of modern well maintained drilling rigs with experienced drillers and supervisors that can drill difficult ground conditions where other drilling companies struggle whilst providing a quality drill sample that you can have confidence in. I have no hesitation in recommending Raglan drilling for upcoming work you may be considering.

“Raglan have completed all of St Barbara’s regional exploration drill programs since 2017. In that time they have drilled approximately 150,000 metres of AC in some very challenging ground, almost 20,000 metres of lake aircore drilling and about 20,000 metres of RC. They have good gear and experienced drillers who are always willing to listen to our requirements and help us achieve our goals. I have no hesitation in recommending Gus, Hugo and the team to anyone looking to do some drilling.”

“I commenced using the drilling services of Raglan Drilling when the Lacey brothers started their business in 2008. I have continued using their services as they have grown their business for aircore, RC and diamond drilling since 2011, and currently provide drilling services to Lefroy Exploration. They set a high standard of work, have a can do attitude and provide a safe drilling operation whilst delivering quality drill samples. They have been and continue to be a pleasure to deal with over the plus 10 years”
