Our History

Raisebore Australia is a South Australian-based company providing specialised raiseboring services to the Australian and international mining sector. It has the dynamic ability to ream raises from 0.6 metres up to 6.0 metres in diameter utilising a large fleet of raiseboring machines and an extensive inventory of consumables. To July 2016, the company has drilled in excess 132 kilometers and reamed in excess of 116 kilometres of shafts; and provided drilling machines and crews for projects throughout Australia and to international projects in West Africa, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Vietnam and Portugal.

Raisebore Australia was launched in March 1994 by Rod Bertram, who has been an innovator in the Australian industry since 1992. Today, Raisebore Australia is the largest privately owned raiseboring company in Australia and a leader in cutting-edge technology and processes. The company’s growth is attributed to a highly skilled team of professionals (many of whom have been with the company for more than 10 years), plus loyal clients, a buoyant marketplace and a culture of capital investment to ensure we maintain a leading fleet.

“We will continue to offer unparalleled service to the mining industry in metalliferous, hard rock and coal, as well as civil construction. Our focus is not only on experience and collaboration to get the job done, but ensuring the safety of our team and the teams of our clients”…Rod Bertram | Managing Director.
