Providing comprehensive drilling services since 2011.
Omineca Diamond Drilling Ltd. was started in 2011 by experienced partners Bruce Hiller and Tony Clovis, who believed there was a need to provide a new level of flexible and responsive drilling services to support the rapidly expanding field of metal and mineral exploration.
Omineca Diamond Drilling Ltd.'s strong combination of drilling, helicopter and remote location expertise is supported by high quality, certified drilling equipment and well-defined health and safety procedures.
Bruce Hiller's heli experience started in 1980 and he started a drilling company in 1985. He has been involved in all aspects of the industry, including ownership, management, field work, and in the design and manufacture of several models of drill rigs. Bruce also has extensive experience managing operations in Central and South America.
Tony Clovis started in the oil drilling industry in 1982 and diamond drilling in 1988. He has enjoyed the majority of those years in a managerial role, throughout Canada and Central America. Tony has a vast amount of experience with surface coring, underground, high pressure, and helicopter supported drilling jobs. Tony formed Omineca Diamond Drilling Ltd. with his former employer Bruce Hiller. With an aggressive start in 2011 with three drills, Tony looks forward to overseeing Omineca's controlled growth.
"Omineca’s efficiency comes from the high calibre drill team and well maintained equipment. The rig that arrived on site had been fully serviced prior to arrival so break downs were almost non-existent. Any unforeseen problems were fixed in minimal time and replacement parts were never an issue. The drill team achieved consistent high meterage shifts while maintaining a top safety record. Dolly Varden Silver Corperation would not hesitate to recommend Omineca Diamond drilling to any company that seeks a high production rate with safe and professional service."
