“Midnight Sun conducted a small RC program for me in Arizona. Arrived as scheduled from the Yukon with great personnel, all equipment functioning and a highly organized drilling system and support. Started the following day and finished faster than anticipated. The team was great to work with and I look forward to our next program with Midnight Sun.”

“Midnight Sun was extraordinarily effective on our site this past year. The crews were efficient, professional, safety conscious, and drilled each hole to specifications, allowing us to test our priority targets and trust the crews to get the job done.”

“Midnight Sun did a fantastic job at our Unga Island project in the Aleutian Islands. Their Grasshopper and Hornet rigs were ideal for our needs and allowed us to test targets quickly and with minimal platform preparation. Their crews were experienced and professional and carried out the program quickly with an absolute minimum of downtime. We look forward to having Midnight Sun drilling with us in upcoming programs.”
