RopeCon® for the Booysendal expansion project

As part of an additional expansion program, Booysendal North Mine, contracted Doppelmayr to design and construct an additional RopeCon®, to tie in with the first system on Booysendal South Mine, allowing transport of ore from mining modules in the north of the concession. This RopeCon® system will convey 400 tph, over 2.8km, with a vertical drop of 160m.

Following some delays due to the Covid restrictions, the system is under site construction again and is planned to be operating in 2021.

REM Construction Consultants is proud to be the Partner of Doppelmayr Transport Technology in Southern Africa and having been involved in this project.
