Foremost is excited to announce a brand new RC Exploration Drilling Rig that will be added to our exploration equipment product line-up in 2021, the Apex65. The Apex 65 features a proprietary feed system that reduces maintenance costs, increases safety, and improves performance.  With 65,000 lbs of pullback and the ability to be configured on tracks or chassis, the Apex 65 can satisfy a wide range of RC exploration requirements making it one of the most versatile, powerful, and safe drilling rigs in the mineral exploration industry.

A big thank you goes out to the Engineering and Manufacturing teams for their hard work, creativity, and time devoted to taking this brand new Apex65 RC exploration drill from concept to reality!
