Since 1959, O’Keefe Drilling has been providing services throughout the Western United States to meet the challenges of the drilling industry.
In 1965 the company began a leach dump-drilling program for the Anaconda Company in Butte, Montana. This program continued until the closure of the Anaconda Mines in 1981. In the early 1970s, O’Keefe Drilling contributed to the pioneering of reverse circulation drilling. This method of rotary drilling is widely used throughout the United States today in mining exploration. O’Keefe Drilling expanded its operations all over the Western United States with offices in Montana, Nevada, and Arizona. The Company presently operates over 15 rigs throughout these states.
