Major Drilling is receiving worldwide attention for its record-breaking diamond drill hole—now the longest in Canada—at 3,467 meters. On January 26, 2020, Major Drilling broke the record at the Osisko Mining Discovery 1 hole at the Windfall Lake gold deposit in Québec. Just 15 days later, the project achieved another breakthrough when the Osisko team and drill partners reached the 1 million meters drilled milestone at Windfall.
