Shaft Sinking

We’ve sunk and equipped some of the world’s largest shafts in the harshest conditions on earth.

Shafts are a core component of many underground mining operations—an activity that sits squarely in the critical path of the Project Manager’s schedule. Traditionally, this is the most challenging discipline, and for that reason it remains the reserve of specialist contractors like RUC.

RUC brings a wide range of experience and expertise to the discipline, gained from sinking and equipping some of the largest shafts in the world, often in the harshest conditions. From the remote highlands of Papua to the technically challenging urban landscapes of Hong Kong, our turnkey solution for shaft projects, delivers a final constructed solution that gets your high-risk projects done with a minimum of fuss. Utilising all our core skills, our extensive fleet of equipment and unmatched experience, we take all the headaches out of your biggest shaft sinking challenges.
