This ability makes a huge impact on the results we provide to our clients.” 86 | EXPLORATION-PROCESSING.COM raditionally, mineral drilling contractors have had a reputation for being unsafe and uninnovative,” explains Will Gove, North American general manager of Swick Mining Services. But we are changing that, which is a refreshing change to the industry.” Swick Mining Services has respect for the traditional mineral drilling methods – founder and Managing Director Kent Swick has more than 20 years of experience as a mechanical engineer in the industry – but it became one of the largest firms of its kind in Australia by adding value to its services. Much of this value came from the technology it developed, and with success in Australia, the company became confident it would be attractive to clients on the international level. Founded in 1995, Swick Mining Services provides underground and surface drilling services to mining clients in gold, iron ore, nickel, copper, lead, zinc and manganese. As a third-generation driller, Kent Swick’s expertise lead the company’s development of innovative rig designs and drilling practices, which contributed to the firm’s growth. In 2006, Swick Mining Services went public and decided to market its products and services internationally. Since then, the company has established offices in Canada and the United States.
