Mining drilling rigs are used for two main purposes, exploration drilling which aims to identify the location and quality of a mineral, and production drilling, used in the production-cycle for mining.
There are many types and designs of drilling rigs, with many drilling rigs capable of switching or combining different drilling technologies as needed. Drilling rigs can be described using any of the following attributes.
New portable drillcat technology uses smaller portable trailer mounted rigs with shorter 3-metre (10 ft) drill pipe. The shorter drill pipe also allows a much smaller mast. Portable trailer mounted drilling rigs have drill ratings from 90 to 200 metres (300 to 800 ft) depending on mud pump flow and pressure ratings and drill pipe sizes.
