Goldcrop is out to quicken it by installing an inner shaft between levels, called a winze
, to dramatically cut truck haul times to the mine's underground crusher.
Production continues to be supported by access to resources below the 750m level through the development of a second decline into the AR Main ore body as well as through the current decline at AR South and through the 6 Winze
At Musselwhite, the company is investing approximately $90 million to develop an underground winze
and associated infrastructure that will result in reduced reliance on high-cost truck haulage.
An attempt was made to sink a winze
to mine the lode below creek level, but this was unsuccessful due to water issues.
The vein was further developed from the second level with an inclined winze
(internal shaft) 30 m deep.
Good crystals of vivianite and ludlamite were also found in stopes between the 7000 and 6850 levels, north of the 491 ore pass and near the top of the Pierce winze
in the Chicago zone.
Many industries have potential applications for honeycomb panels, such as store fixtures, point of purchase displays, furniture and cabinetry," explains Dave Winze

Los Angles Police Detective Michael Winze
said he doesn't know where Duarte went after leaving the hospital, but she wound up at the downtown California Hospital Medical Center.
Area mine workings dating from 1915 include adits, a raise, a winze
, trenches and an inclined shaft.

Goldcorp plans to install a winze
at Musslewhite in Canada to improve efficiency and extend the mine's life.
The crystals were found embedded in limonite in a winze
off of the main inclined shaft.
