Shaft Mining

Haggie® was originally established to supply the growing gold mining industry with ropes for mine hoists. Our mine hoist ropes have been used in the worlds deepest shafts for over 75 years. This section contains recommended mine winding ropes for all winder applications. This includes ropes for:

Small drum winder operating in vertical shaft with fixed guides, an incline or with guide ropes.

Large drum winder operating in vertical shaft with rope guides, fixed guides or in incline shaft.

Blair multi-rope winder with fixed guides.

Koepe winder operating at depth to 2000m.

Tail (or balance) rope.

Sinking stage winder.

Ropes for short- and deep winds.

Triangular Strands

High strength, robust ropes used on drum and friction winders. Its uniquely triangular shape reduces sheave and liner wear whilst protecting the individual wire from excessive point loading.

J39 (page 8 titled 6x32 (14/12/6Δ)/F), J40 (page 9 titled 6x33 (15/12/6Δ)/F), J41 (page 9 titled 6x34(16/12/6Δ)/F) are the most common triangular strands.

Koepe Ropes

Koepe ropes are used on Koepe winders that work with traction sheaves. It is a system where the winding drum is replaced by a large wheel or sheave. Both cages are connected to the same rope, which passes around some 180 degrees of the sheave in a groove of friction material.

Guide ropes

It guides the skips as it goes up and down the shafts. There is one construction, a half locked coil rope and seven different diameters but not limited to that.

Tail Ropes

Download the datasheet to see the estimated mass (kg/m) of the S25 construction that we would normally recommend.

Kibble Ropes

Low rotating multi-strand ropes used to aid removal of rock via a kibble hoist during shaft sinking. 

It has to be strong and corrosion resistant. Mostly, its mode of failure and discard is due to wear, fatigue and bending stresses.
