A Borehole shaft system was an innovative approach that has now been installed at the Young Davidson mine and is deemed as a success by all. Injection Hoisting was a winner at the #Disrupt Mining competition in 2017 and is under development at this time. The focus of the talk will be on the challenges and progress of development and application of each innovation.
