Home News & Media Dando News Multitec 9000 Feedback- Phosphate Exploration in Egypt


Dando recently received excellent feedback about the Multitec 9000 and compressor unit it supplied to the government owned organisation Egyptian Mineral Resources Authority (EMRA) in 2015.

Drilling in the arid conditions of the Aswan Desert, the track mounted multipurpose rig is currently conducting conventional coring using air for a phosphate exploration project.

“They are both very strong- we cannot believe how quickly the rig drills” said the customer. “To date we have drilled 20 shallow holes.” While carrying out the drilling, the rig has also been attracting attention from other companies in the country looking to acquire Dando rigs.

Dando has a rich history of supplying rigs into Egypt. One influential factor in EMRA choosing Dando was hearing of the success of Red Sea Mining’s  two Mintec 5 rigs, also being used for phosphate exploration in the region. This was coupled with further positive feedback from ASCOM, another Dando Mintec 5 customer in Egypt.
