Generations of Miners and Drillers


DJ Drilling was founded by John Schussler in 1971. John first started coal mining in Belgium in 1947, coming to Canada not long after in 1951. John drilled on many properties and in 1964 he drilled the first hole on the Turnagain Nickel property in Northern BC, just west of Dease Lake. He started contracting his drilling services in 1971 on the Susta Property, under the name DJ Drilling.

“From that day on, I never looked back…” – John Schussler

David Schussler, John’s only son, began running equipment on his father’s Boulder Gold property in 1989 at the age of 18. It was then that he started on his first diamond drill, perpetuating a family tradition that extended back to the Bavarian regions of Germany. Today, with the help of over 80 staff and 20 diamond drilling rigs, DJ Drilling has successfully serviced contracts for clients all over western Canada’s provinces and territories as well as select countries from around the world. With a loyal customer base, and many years of successful experience, DJ Drilling has evolved to become a reliable and dependable service provider to the exploration mining industry.
