Deilmann Haniel is general contractor for construction of the shafts at the mine, while Eaton has supplied a turnkey signalling and communication system for the shaft sinking.
The construction of the surface complex at Ust-Jaiwa began in 2015. Deilmann Haniel plans to complete the construction of shafts in 2017 and produce its first ore in 2020. The new mine will have two shafts: a 465m-deep shaft with skip winding (for hoisting the ore) and a shaft with cage winding (for hoisting and descending workers and loads).
