[ B Y K AT E B U R R O W S ] TonaTec Exploration boasts more than 80 years of. combined industry experience from its managers.. • Mapleton, Utah Since opening its doors only five years ago, TonaTec Exploration LLC has earned a well-deserved reputation for high-quality, reliable work. With a management team boasting more than 80 years of combined experience in the industry, it is no surprise the company has enjoyed steady, deliberate growth each year since its inception. TonaTec is best known for core drilling, directional drilling and consulting services, and focuses 70 percent of its work on gold, and approximately 30 percent on copper and other minerals. General Manager Steve Bills launched his career 39 years ago by getting his feet wet helping on a rig, eventually working his way up to foreman and operations manager. After spending about 20 years in a management role, Bills broke away from what he saw as a very corporate-oriented company to develop his own business. Bills, along with two other former colleagues, Paul Horschel and Justin Semadeni, started the new business. Horschel, now the operations manager, boasts 16 years experience in the minerPROFILE “We go out of our way to keep our employees happy. When they are happy they do quality work for TonaTec and our clients, and the rest comes easy.” // STEVE BILLS, general manager TonaTec Exploration. Headquarters: Mapleton, Utah | Employees: 55 Specialty: Core drilling, directional drilling and consulting services. 223
