Fully Integrated Range of Mining Services

We have the capacity to offer a fully integrated mining services solution from first stage exploration drilling to delivery of ore to the mill.

This means we have the capacity to work across all facets of your project delivering greater management and communication efficiencies, identification and faster implementation of improvements or changes and a flexible, coordinated approach to ensuring the program remains on schedule.

Young & Expanding Fleet

Our company operates one of the youngest rig fleets in the industry, while our Heavy Mining Equipment fleet is rapidly growing with the recent acquisition of D9R bulldozers, 785 dump trucks and 340D, 6040 and 6020B mining shovels.

Our fleet has a reputation for its quality and reliability as a result of regular maintenance and upgrades. Our equipment is also fitted with the latest technologies for enhanced efficiency, safety and data collection.

Maintenance Services

An available and reliable fleet is essential to keeping exploration and mining operations running to schedule. 

Our maintenance teams provide a fleet you can rely on by focusing on preventative maintenance and optimising the asset’s performance.

We provide our clients with a consistently high availability averaging 85% or above.

We have a dedicated service workshop in Mwanza, where we undertake drill rig rebuilds, complete routine maintenance and build innovative support equipment.

Global Experience, Tanzanian Focus

Our company focuses on the  African  markets, we were established in Tanzania and we have been operating here since 2005.

We have well-established operations across the country, having delivered drilling services at Geita Gold Mine since 2006 and North Mara Gold Mine since 2008. 

We have a dedicated maintenance and stores facility located in Mwanza and an administrative office in Dar es Salaam.

We also have operations across East, North and West Africa including Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Cote d’Ivoire, Egypt, Guinea, Kenya, Mali, Mauritania, Nigeria and Saudi Arabia. 

Local Community Support

We embrace our role in the communities where we work and recognize the impact our operations can have on local society. We strive to develop strong relationships with these communities and build sustainable value in local regions by providing a range of support to residents, local communities and charity organisations.

In my experience of using the Capital Drilling teams over the last 15  years or so I can honestly say they have some of the best and most positively impactful social programmes for their staff and the communities in which they operate.

It is a comfort to know that your ‘contractors’ are just as focussed on developing and maintaining a project's social license to operate as the owner's teams are.

Well done again to Capital Drilling, setting the standard for the industry.
