BIG ICE services constructed a large kimberlite bulk sample drilling ICE platform on Sable lake, NWT near the Ekati mine. This pad was to support 2 separate 500,000lb drilling setups that were drilling 24″ diameter holes into the kimberlite for feasibility and mine planning of the Sable Pipe. The construction went very fast, using our BIG ICE high pressure spray rig.
