Shafts & Infrastructure

In this category, we include the design of shafts for both the sinking and permanent shaft configurations. Shaft sinking in South Africa is as old as mining. Area-square, with its partners, associated companies and consultants have a depth of in-house knowledge and background to place us at the forefront of any shaft sinking design including headgears and related winding equipment for both the sinking and permanent phase. Our key personnel have been sinking shafts globally over the past 40 years and are in the position to offer best practice solutions for any shaft and/or sinking configuration for vertical and incline shafts in various topographical ground conditions, for the mining, civil and tunnelling world.
