Hoist & Haul 2015: Your source for the latest technologies, statutory requirements, and best practices in the industry.

Mining continues to be driven by economies of scale. As ore bodies are explored at greater depths and larger payloads need to be transported at higher speeds, larger and more powerful equipment is necessary.

Hoist & Haul 2015 covers a range of topics including hoisting, conveying, and rail and truck haulage. Industry experts from ten countries discuss complete transport systems, subsystems and components, design, installation, maintenance, and economic issues.

Important developments in mine hoisting safety requirements are covered with the objective of reaching a common understanding and approach when defining new safety requirements.

A fully searchable CD containing the entire proceedings is included.

Topics include:

  • Brakes and Brake Controls
  • Design, Operation, and Maintenance of Ropes
  • Motor, Drives, and Supply
  • Hoist Control Based on SIL or PL Standards
  • Hoisting System Elements
  • Underground Horizontal Transport
  • Incline Transport: Hoist, Conveyor, and Truck
  • Shaft Guiding Systems
  • Shaft Systems: New and Upgrade

This comprehensive book contains 53 papers from industry experts. These authors share information on the latest projects and experiences from around the globe. This is your key to keeping up to date on the newest methods and technologies for hoisting and haulage.
