The Company has established centrally located world-class workshops to promote client satisfaction through reliable operational performance. In addition, within the workshop in Ghana is a manufacturing facility with the capacity to produce ancillary equipment such as RC drill rods and RC wire-line drill subs in-house, reducing downtime and reliance on suppliers for these items.
The well-resourced, centrally located workshops further reduce downtime, as the Company can fairly quickly reach most of its current customer sites. We have increased our geographic footprint in West Africa to include several countries, as the Company has maintained its strong presence in both Ghana and Burkina Faso, has re-entered Cote d’Ivoire and has recently operated in Mali and Togo. The Company also recently expanded into the African Copperbelt establishing a base in Chingola, Zambia.
