Approach to Estimating Shaft Costs

Hi Everyone...I posted this in the Shaft Sinking Group but thought it might get a lot more exposure and potential input here.

I work for a group that conducts mine cost estimating and we would like to begin updating an article that we publish regarding the costs to sink shafts. Currently, we provide pre-feasibility level estimated costs for a number of diameters (or rectangular dimensions) based on low, medium and hard Uniaxial Compressive Strengths. …

Interested to see if any group members have experience with operating or the technical evaluation of trolley assisted haulage. I am interested in evaluating the technology for our project, but relevant experience seems hard to find.

Looking forward to your replies

The mining industry is so colossal that I thought it would be genuine to set off the first among several conversations not in terms of sectors (crushing, maintenance, drilling, processing, tunneling, underground mining, etc.), but connectivity, for what it is worth, which I believe is one of the most sensitive aspects in mining as it touches all those sectors.

I want to be more specific here, otherwise, this discussion…

The mining industry consumes billions of liters of diesel and heavy fuel annually. Fuel and power are two of the biggest input costs and for remote mines, unreliable power grids and long distances from major ports or fuel refineries can be a logistical nightmare.

As the costs of renewable are already competitive with coal fired power stations,we need to ask how mining, as a sustainable industry and as the commodity supplier to the growing electric vehicle industry can make a difference…
