Modern Mine Cages Improve Industry Safety and Efficiency
Twenty-two years old and a native of Thunder Bay, Dani Drewek is a cage tender at Goldcorp’s Red Lake Mine in northwestern Ontario. She faces the same challenges as her fellow miners do each day when they go to work. However, Dani and workers in mines across the country travel underground in modern, reliable mine cages that are a testament to the level of workplace safety that dominates the equipment and conveyance systems operating in Canada today. Contributing to the technological advances in the mining industry are companies like Wabi Iron & Steel Corp, which continue to provide state-of-the-art underground equipment such as mine man cages designed to increase productivity and to provide for the safe transport of workers.
