NDRC Drilling Contractors WA was established in 2008 by Nigel Cupit and Dean Rizzi to provide exploration drilling services as we identified a need in the industry for experienced operators to provide a Safe, Productive and Cost Effective Operation ensuring the delivery of a quality product to our clients.

As we are hands-on operators, our combined knowledge gained through decades of drilling experience added to our passion for the job has created a business that has built a healthy reputation within the industry that has consistently delivered on greater than 96% rig availability minimizing all-round costs. We believe this is imperative in today’s economic climate to deliver more “bang for your buck” and our ability to do this allows us to out-perform our competitors in the market.

On behalf of Northwest Resources Limited (Northwest), I would like to thank you, Nigel and Andrew for your excellent work with NDRC Drilling at our Nullagine gold project.

Your assistance prior to and during the drilling program was greatly appreciated and I found it very easy to deal and work with you and the rest of the crew.

Your knowledge and experience, and being able to communicate what was happening throughout the program ensured the program was managed and completed safely and efficiently.

Northwest would be more than willing to engage NDRC’s drilling services in the future and we look forward to working with you again.

I have known Dean Rizzi for approximately 2.5 years now having worked with him on a client basis in both the Pilbara and Goldfields.

I have found Dean to be an extremely honest and reliable person who has a friendly and personable manner.

Dean is very passionate about the drilling industry and is a talented driller who takes pride in all facets of his work. He is very  much organised and is always willing and prepared to negotiate. Dean is more than proficient in managing his staff with both a professional and amicable approach.

I would welcome the opportunity to work with Dean in the future and I wish him every success with his endeavours.
