Ronan Collins is the Director and Head of Product Development for CARDBORED – a drilling and sampling solutions company. He has commercialised a broad range of technology and data infrastructure products in both Underground and Open cut Mining over the past 10 years, with several crossovers into other industries. Having a passion for sustainable mining, he is particularly interested in process and cost effective environmentally friendly solutions. With a background in biomedical R&D, and experience in non-invasive procedures, he sees significant opportunities and cross pollination in both the Exploration and Production Drilling Sectors. When not in the office, Ronan enjoys working in his garden – predominantly replanting it after his 2 dogs. He is currently working on Autonomous Drilling solutions and lives in Perth with his wife Elaine.
CARDBORED provides exploration sampling data in real time using Autonomous Electric Drill Rigs. We achieve this through the use of environmentally friendly, disposable drilling consumables, which allows us to drastically reduce the size and cost of our Drill Rigs.
