DRC Drilling Pty Ltd

DRC Drilling Pty Ltd was established in 2015 when the owner of Raise Bore Australia purchased the assets from Pinnacle Drilling.

This acquisition consisted of a number of late model Sandvik multi-purpose surface drill rigs, a fleet of Boart Longyear underground coring rigs, including a new semi-autonomous LM110, and all the associated ancillary plant and equipment required to support the drilling operations.

DRC Drilling has since relocated to larger premises in Dubbo to take advantage of the closer proximity to key customers and maximise the opportunities in central and eastern Australia. It also creates efficiencies with Raise Bore Australia sharing the facility to ensure the lower overhead costs are passed on to clients.


At DRC Drilling we are committed to offering the highest level of customer service.

Our services are offered across Australia with our head office based in the central location of Dubbo, NSW.
