Drilling: seemingly simple, highly specialised, often challenging, always rewarding!

T3 Drilling Limited is a provider of specialised drilling and associated services to the mining and mineral exploration industry throughout Africa.

Since established in December 2011, T3 Drilling has acquired a fleet of Boart Longyear LF90D core drill rigs, Schramm T685 RC drill rigs and Smith Capital 310 RC grade control drill rigs supported by a comprehensive fleet of all-terrain vehicles enabling access to Africa’s most remote and challenging sites.

Management’s strict adoption of equipment standardisation within drilling specialisations, coupled with skilled drill crews, maintenance teams and support personnel, has enabled T3 Drilling to develop a reputation for delivering consistently high productivity, reliable service and accurate geological sampling.

 Our capabilities include:

  • Surface Coring Drilling
  • Reverse Circulation Drilling
  • Grade Control Drilling
  • Rotary Air Blast Drilling (RAB)
  • Mine De-Watering & Monitoring Well Drilling

T3 Drilling has registered operations in Mauritius, Zambia and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) where drilling services have been provided to several respected global mining houses including First Quantum Mining, Freeport McMoran, Eurasian Natural Resources Corporation (ENRC), Glencore and the Minerals and Metals Group (MMG).

T3 Drilling is closely associated with the Teichmann Group, whose head office is based in Mauritius and who have a well-established footprint throughout Africa and a proven track record in Mining, Civil Construction, Roads and Earthworks, Plant Hire and Agriculture. This association, particularly with the Teichmann Mining Division, affords T3 Drilling additional technical and logistical support on the ground as well as administratively through its well-established, shared local and international infrastructure. This enables rapid start-ups in new territories to facilitate T3 Drilling’s expansion throughout Africa.

Managed by a team of motivated and experienced professionals, the company is well positioned and focused on diversifying our services within the drilling field and expanding the company’s capacity and geographical reach in a sustainable manner to achieve the goal of becoming a leading supplier of drilling services on the African continent.
