Shift Engineers x 2 (12-hour shifts)

Vertical Shaft Sinking (state-of-the-art Woodsmith Mine)

Whitby (Digs if required available)

 

My clients are specialists in all forms of tunneling works and shaft sinking projects to main contractors, utility providers, water and wastewater industries. Our expert knowledge and track record of delivering demanding high-quality works, gives us the confidence to provide complete satisfaction to our clients. Our experience stems from delivering some of the UK’s most complex infrastructure projects.

 

I am now recruiting for several Shift Engineers on this groundbreaking project, this method of shift sinking has never been used here in the UK.

 

Our Project area contains the largest, highest grade resource of polyhalite to be found anywhere in the world. The polyhalite resource of 2.66 billion tonnes, as defined according to the internationally recognised JORC code, represents seven per cent of the Project’s area of interest.

Polyhalite will be extracted via two mine shafts and transported outside of the National Park to Teesside on a conveyer belt system in an underground tunnel. It will then be granulated at a materials handling facility, with the majority being exported to overseas markets. The Company is aiming to achieve first product from the mine by the end of 2021, ramping up to an initial production capacity of 10 million tonnes per annum (Mtpa) and then full production of 20 Mtpa.

 

Infrastructure development includes:

  • Sinking the shafts at Woodsmith Mine to access the polyhalite deposit
  • Developing a 37 kilometre-long underground mineral transport system (MTS)
  • A materials handling facility (MHF) in Teesside for granulating or chipping the mined material into the final product
  • Harbour facilities comprising an approximately 3.5 kilometre-long overland conveyor, a ship berth and a ship loader located adjacent to the harbour on the River Tees

 

Please get in touch if you’d like to be considered for these positions.
