Beresford drill manufacturer receives nearly $400K from federal and provincial governments

The provincial and federal governments are helping a Beresford company get a new drill prototype to market.

Discovery Drill Manufacturer has developed a state-of-the-art diamond drill which is able to reach depths of more than 11,300 feet.

That's around 30 per cent deeper than previous drills.

The combined, nearly $400,000 investment will allow the company grow and create approximately 15 local job by the end of 2019.

President John Lebonville says the funding will help his company continue to expand and innovate.

Drills built by the company are used around the world.
