Published on Mining.com: Increase mine productivity through better shaft and hoist operation

September 10, 2017 Jason Morrow

Shaft and hoist systems are often the focus when productivity increases are planned

 

At their most basic level, underground mines are straightforward operations that dig rock out of the ground and bring it to the surface for processing. Yet in reality, an underground mine is far from straightforward or even simple: an efficient mine is a finely tuned factory with moving parts that must all synch-up and work together seamlessly in order for the whole to function efficiently. A shaft and hoist are a critical part of an underground mine and as a result, it is an area where bottlenecks appear. Jason Morrow demonstrates how you can improve your shaft and hoist system without decreasing productivity.
