Prospector II - Track Mounted RC/RAB Drill

MPP’s most common RC/RAB/air core drill, the Prospector II was developed for all stages of mineral exploration. The rig features a 260 HP Cummins diesel, 400 CFM / 200 PSI on the board air compressor and 307 track carrier package. The rig can be configured for RAB (rotary air blast) and/or air core drilling for first pass exploration programs. The Prospector II can also be set up for RC (reverse circulation) drilling programs. The Prospector II is small enough to fit into a standard 20ft sea container ideal for programs in Africa and Central and South America.
