Wire Rope, Saving Lives

It was over a year ago that thirty three miners were trapped underground in Chile. They were stuck for roughly two months, nearly half of a mile underground. Luckily, in this case they were able to be rescued. Mining can be a dangerous job, and there seem to be accidents far too often. Sadly, mining is still an important part of our economy, so risks continue to be taken. Mine shafts can be very deep, so efficient and safe measures must be taken to make sure that nothing goes wrong when working in those underground tunnels. Extra precautions are also taken when lowering and hoisting people, equipment and minerals in the shaft. Wire ropes are often employed for these processes.
