Led by the increasing demand of the mineral exploration industry, Fordia introduces a new sure value product, the Golden Bear 1400m NQ drill rig. Powerful and reliable, this Canadian surface diamond rig offers great performances and drills up to 1800 m with BQ rods.

The Golden Bear 1400m NQ complements perfectly the 0.4kmB, 0.8kmB and the 1.4kmB Versadrill rigs, actually sold at Fordia.
