With LKAB Wassaras water-powered technology, you can base your mining methods on the ore bodies, rather than on the drilling limitations.

Did you know?

Most underground mines can implement the Wassara technology with their current water-handling system.

Case studies

See our featured Case studies below to learn what real world Mining-projects our technology has been a part of.

  • Drilling for opening slots with speed and precision in Chile

    The San Geronimo mine in Chile was facing the challenge of creating open slots with a high productivity in a safe manner.

  • Wassara is drilling faster, safer, and more accurate in Lubambe Copper Mine

    The combination of the water-powered Wassara-hammers and the water-powered drill rig, provided by the contractor HPE, achieved optimal drilling conditions.

  • Drilling scaled up iron ore production in LKAB mines by water-power

    Today, all production drilling at LKAB is operated with the water-powered DTH hammer from Wassara
