Hoist and Haul 2005

Conference Proceedings
Published in 2005

Recent Australian underground mine developments have led to a variety of different ore transport solutions being adopted for each specific new mine design. Design decisions are increasingly being influenced by developments in technology, which need to be factored into capital and cost considerations. For example, some new projects opt for trucking of ore up spiral ramps, while others utilise incline conveyors or conventional vertical shaft hoisting.

Similar trends are occurring around the globe and therefore the theme of this conference was broadened to allow shaft hoisting to be compared with a range of alternative underground ore handling technologies. ‘Hoist and Haul’ now includes any systems or technologies for the handling of ore from the point of extraction from the mine through to stockpiling on surface.

The papers in this volume cover a wide range of topics including shaft hoisting, incline and drift hoisting, conveying, hydraulic hoisting, rail haulage, tramming and truck haulage, as well as papers covering the design of systems and components, operating, economic and safety issues.

This volume is out of print - individual papers can be accessed below.
