Steenkampskraal Underground Refurbishment:
GWMG has also completed several underground refurbishment steps as it prepares for mining activity at the Steenkampskraal site. These include:

 

  • A new ventilation system with a set of three fans is being installed near the top of the decline for purposes of pulling air underground through the mine. Ingress of fresh air will be through the decline as well as through the vertical secondary exit shaft.
  • The new ropes, winder and head gear will undergo commissioning trials early in 2013.
