SPT to attend Drillfest showcasing new developments for directional surveying
SPT will be present at Drillfest, , the event focused on improving the knowledge of the Drilling Industry to be held at the Royal Toowoomba, (Australia), on the 18th and 19th of October.
It aims to increase the skills and knowledge of all attendees, with the primary audience being drilling and supply personnel.
The event, organised by the Australian Drilling Industry Association (ADIA), offers sponsorship and exhibition opportunities for companies interested in participating.
Some of the actions that will take place at Drillfest 2023 include:
- Indoor and outdoor exhibits: from business software, to innovation in downhole drilling tools, supplies and consumables.
- Expert talks
- Networking events
- Field demonstrations
- Formal presentations will be kept to a minimum in order to focus on the practical. In this way, attendees will be able to interact directly with participating companies.
In addition, the programme includes a dinner on Wednesday evening free of charge for all attendees.

Sean McCormick, General Manager of SPT Australasia, will be on stand #13 to showcase the company’s latest developments and offer an augmented reality experience for visitors to try out the tools and discover their benefits.
SPT at Drillfest – Optimise your operations thanks to its innovations
The GyroMaster™ is an instrument used in mineral exploration to measure the trajectory of vertical boreholes accurately and continuously.
It incorporates Navibore™ solid-state continuous gyro technology, which combined with our intuitive operating software delivers the most accurate data in the industry. As a result, it is the only gyro recommended for operation at high latitudes.
In addition, it is considered the most agile and accurate true north finder in the industry, as it is capable of high-speed measurements without stopping, reducing operation downtime by more than 3.5 hours.
Gyro RigAligner™ is a device that allows rigs to be precisely aligned in less than 5 minutes.
It is designed for permanent use, thanks to its rechargeable battery that lasts up to 10 hours.
By aligning drilling rigs in record time, it saves costs and reduces downtime.
Mining in Australia
Mining is a major industry in Australia, contributing approximately 10.4% of GDP.
Some of the country’s most important mineral resources include gold, iron, coal, nickel and lithium.
Australia’s gold production reached an all-time high of 325 tonnes in 2019, according to mining consultancy Surbiton Associates. In addition, more than 40,000 workers are expected to be attracted over the next two years due to projects in Western Australia’s resources sector.
The Pilbara region, one of the most resource-rich areas of the state, is home to some of the largest mines in the region, such as Pilgangoora, which has dethroned Greenbushes to become the world’s largest hard-rock lithium mine.
The country’s rich geography offers unprecedented opportunities for the exploration and exploitation of natural resources. As such, SPT’s presence in Australia contributes to the technological and sustainable development of the local industry.
