Removing the Ore
Once the ore had been broken it had to be transported to the surface.
Broken ore from development drives and stopes was transported or trammed to the Ore Pass (a shaft dedicated to the movement of ore only) by electric locos and one tonne wagons. The ore would transfered to the Skip Loading Station at the bottom of Victory Shaft. Overnight a measuring flask was used to fill the two tonne ore skips which were then hoisted to the surface and the ore tipped into the Mill for processing.
