Additionally, we have dedicated our branch to serving the exploration needs of Central Canadian drillers. Our affiliated brand, PRODrill, contains a full lineup of bits, reaming shells, casing, well sand, and many other essential products. With the largest diamond drilling inventory in Northwest Ontario, we pride ourselves on being ready for the present.
