Raisebor offers a full range of shaft services: surface, underground, uncased, cased, steel plate, or concrete lined. Our staff is safe, professional, highly skilled, and committed to a strong work ethic. Our strong financial position in a family owned, U.S. business allows for flexibility in an otherwise structured economy.
Raisebor was founded in 1973 with one rig.
The Robbins 41-R provided us with raise drilling capability of four, five, and six foot diameter raises from relatively shallow depths. Now, we have added the Robbins 61-R,Ingersoll Rand RBM-7, Robbins 83 RM-DC, and most recently, the Atlas Copco 123RH. This equipment enables Raisebor to pull larger raises up to 20′ diameter at 3500 feet or up to 26′ diameter at 2000 feet. Dip angles of 45 degrees are not uncommon to us and we feel our drilling procedures enable drilling in straight holes even in the most difficult formations.
Raisebor can work anywhere a job may be located. We’ve shipped our equipment via truck, train, barge, and ocean freight. Our equipment is designed to be dismantled and re-erected underground. This gets us into difficult locations in a timely manner which saves your company time and money.
Under the direction of Richard W Sidwell, Raisebor General Manager since 1973, our safety record is another advantage of our company. Our lost time accident rate is one of the lowest in the United States.
Our complete line of equipment, financial position, and safety offer our clients turnkey, bonded (if required) worldwide work without relying on assistance from customers or other outside construction companies.
