Once the ore had been broken, it was hauled from underground to the surface in four stages.
Firstly, it was loaded into small wagons or hand barrows and taken along the levels to the bottom of the shaft. Secondly, the ore was off-loaded into large bins or Kibbles. The third stage involved hauling the ore up the shaft to the surface. Fourthly, at the top of the shaft the ore was again off-loaded and transferred to the dressing floors or the mill where it would be processed.
