Aziwell, in cooperation with IDS and Layne de Mexico, utilized the AziDrill Directional Core Barrel in completing Torex Golds Media Luna project, hitting 117 targets from 23 motherholes. Torex Gold was able to reduce the meters required for the drill program by 24 000m, approximately 40% of the total drill program.

Aziwell assisted Nexgen in completing the 2019 Phase I winter drilling program comprising 117 completed holes totaling 50 968 m. Nexgen was able to reduce the meters required for Phase I conversion by 28% due to the ability to target mineralization more accurately with AziDrill Directional Core Barrel.
Troy Boisjoli, Vice-President of Nexgen, commented: "These radioactivity results are particularly impressive considering the advanced shallow angle of interception into the sub-vertical Arrow orebody that AziDrill has been able to deliver over prior drill programs at Arrow."
