Construction activities at the Lalor Project
Lalor Project Production Shaft Sinking:
Commodity: Zinc, Copper, Gold
In April of 2011, Dumas was awarded the contract to sink the production shaft at HudBay Minerals’ Lalor Project.
The scope of the project included sinking of a 6.7 metre diameter concrete lined shaft to a final depth of 1,000 metres. The shaft was sunk “bald” with shaft furnishings installed afterward.
As part of our scope of activities, Dumas was responsible for engineering deliverables including:
- hoist and winch arrangements
- galloway sheave arrangements
- bucket loading and dump arrangements
- sinking conveyances
- all support components
Dumas crews also developed the shaft stations as they were sinking. Located at a remote site 110 kilometres from Flin Flon, Manitoba, this is just one example of the many projects at which Dumas has successfully managed all logistical issues associated with operating in a remote location.
