Diamond drilling school kicks off at Northern College.

As skill shortages in the surface diamond drilling trade continue, Northern College has teamed up with Kirkland Lake Gold Inc. and Cabo Drilling (Ontario) Corp. to develop and implement a training program.

Having begun on Sep. 17, the 10-week Surface Diamond Driller Assistant Common Core training program finds Cabo Drilling providing the requisite diamond drilling equipment. Kirkland Lake Gold will be supplying access to drill sites for practical skills training, as well guidance through the involvement of its staff geologists.

Heading up the program as its head instructor is Ed Mac Veigh, president of Canadian Driller Training, who has 25 years of drilling industry experience.
