Abstract Owing to the inadequacy of the ore transport system at Cassiar in the late 1960's, a new facility was required. This paper traces the various alternatives considered and gives a description of the tramline as installed. The problems encountered, changes made and future modifications are discussed in detail, together with the effects these have on maintenance and operations.
Keywords: Cassiar Mine, Asbestos, Transportation, Tramlines, Loading, Ropes, Wire ropes, Cables.
