The Metzke team were proud to gather together to acknowledge the retirement of Vaughan Burt and to celebrate his career.

The team recognised Vaughan’s service to the drilling contracting industry and the development of the globally recognised Metzke Made range of drilling equipment.

Vaughan spoke fondly of his lifelong involvement in the drilling industry. He said “it’s a game like no other” and that his most cherished and valued memories have been the many people, friendships, and characters he has met along the journey.

Whilst Vaughan has stepped down as a director of Metzke, he is looking forward to being a frequent visitor to the Metzke facilities and keeping in touch with all the team - some of which have been with Vaughan for over 30 years.

To Vaughan and his wife Elizabeth, the Metzke team wish you a long and happy retirement.

Metzke is proud to continue as the naming rights sponsor for the ADIA Driller of the Year Award.

Metzke is pleased to be involved in raising the recognition of ‘the driller” for their contribution and skill in the creation of Australia’s mineral wealth, infrastructure development and management of our continents most precious resource, water.

Where would Kalgoorlie, Newman, Telfer, Kambalda, Olympic Dam, Lake Cowal, Tanami, Peak Downs and Savage River be today, without exploration, resource definition, grade control and water management drilling being carried out?

Drilling has evolved to being one of the most innovative industry’s in reducing risk, enhancing safety and developing and applying technologies.

The industry now provides new entrants a clearly defined career path and accredited certification, providing long term and rewarding employment, making drilling a desirable industry to attract and retain high calibre people.

Drilling techniques and practices developed here in Australia are used globally by the world’s leading drilling and mining companies.

To you the driller, Metzke thanks you for your valuable contribution to our industry and on the ongoing development of Australia’s resources.

The Metzke team completed the refurbishment back to the OEM specification, on time and on budget. The Sampling System is now out in the field delivering high quality consistent samples.

We appreciated the note below we received from our valued client.
“I would like to thank you and your team for getting this sample unit turned around in such a short time frame.”

Metzke is proud to celebrate the achievement of its people.

The Metzke team were pleased to gather this week and acknowledge Jake Scott successfully completing his apprentice and now being recognized as a fully qualified Fitter / Machinist.

Metzke is proud to offer its people opportunities to grow and acquire new skills.

Jake started at Metzke 5 years ago in the stores team, an opportunity then came along to undertake an apprenticeship.

Jake said “I have enjoyed my time so far at Metzke, particularly the open communication, team work, diversity of work, safety culture, the focus on quality and the customer”.

Jake certainly plans to stay on at Metzke to further develop and apply his skills.

Congratulations Jake!

 

 

Metzke stores team member Dain Leona is busy preparing another two Metzke Made, Metzke Splitters for despatch to a valued client.

The Metzke Splitter is a wet and dry drill rig sample splitter. Unlike any other splitter on the Market the Metzke Splitter utilises patented oscillating inlet tracts to evenly distribute sample over radial sample cutters.

This results in sampling cutting rates of up to ten times that of other Splitters (300 cycles/min compared to 40 cycles/min for rotary splitters).

A simple hydraulically operated hinge allows for safe and easy cleaning / inspection, while a large inlet provides high sample flow for increased productivity.

A leading and well-respected independent Geology Consultancy has validated the superior performance of the Metzke Splitter.

“In all metrics reviewed, the Metzke Splitter consistently outperformed the rotary cone splitter in 

sample precision and accuracy”. 

Please contact sales@metzke.com.au for a copy of the report.
