Ranger Drilling raising funds for Australian Bushfires in 24-hour Drillathon

January 21, 2020


This summer Australia has been ravaged by the worst bushfires in recorded history. The whole team at Ranger Drilling agreed we would do all we can to raise much-needed funds for those affected by the fires. The decision: to help by doing what we know best – drilling. 

For 24-hours on February 15th, the Ranger Drillathon will run across all of our sites. Funds raised will be going directly to the Australian Red Cross to help provide support to those affected by the fires across the country. 

How will Drillathon work?

The Drillathon is a marathon drilling event that will run over 1 shift (or a day and night shift for our diamond rigs), with all 20 drilling rigs involved.

Ranger Drilling will be donating up to $2 for every metre drilled during the 24-hour shift.

Support from our crew.

To bolster the efforts, crews have kindly agreed to donate an additional dollar for each hour worked during the shift, making up $12 per person. 

Want to know how to get involved?

Ranger Drilling employees will likely be right in the thick of the Drillathon: busy on your shift and raising funds. We expect it to be 24-hours of hard work and fun for a very worthy cause. We can’t wait to see everyone getting stuck in. 

We invite the wider Ranger community to join in and donate to the cause – to do so, please visit our Fire Response GoFundMe page. Every bit counts; we thank you wholeheartedly for your support.
