About Us

Company Overview

McCallum Rock Drilling (MRD) is a family owned and operated full-service rock drilling and blasting contractor that has been performing precision drilling and blasting in highly controlled environments since its inception in 1988.

We currently operate throughout the Western U.S. including Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Washington and Wyoming. We perform all applications of drilling and blasting including large-scale commercial quarries, heavy construction, road and highway construction, residential and commercial development, and utility and trenchline work.

In addition to MRD, McCallum Powder was created in 2016 to assist in the manufacturing, storage, and transportation of explosive products for all MRD blasting operations.

All day, every day, rock drilling and blasting is what we do.
