1 CFC: 463 Works of superstructure Short description: Remediation of haulageway North, step 2013 is: - Milling of asphalt: 10,000 m2 - Removal and crushing of concrete slabs of cement.
One of these improvements, already started in 1909 by Leach, was a crosscut adit that would become the 2200L haulageway 1150 feet (350 m) below the lowest production level.
The ore pass and the 2200L adit, which became the main haulageway, replaced the destroyed top leg of the aerial tramway.
Ore from all the mines, which had previously been hauled out the 2200L haulageway and down to the 2700L-4100L orepass near the 2700L portal by the surface railway, was now dumped through the new 2200L2700L orepass to near the end of the 2700L (Fig.
6) provided a more direct route to the 4100L haulageway for all ore handled on and above the 2200L, including ore from the recently discovered No.
The 4100L had become the only principal haulageway, and it would remain as such to service the yet to be discovered No.
By the end of 1971 all the ore zones above the 4100 haulageway level had been mined out, namely the Jane, Bluff, Fairview, Empress, Victoria, No.
A main haulageway, ore bin and crushing plant have been installed and became operational in late July.

The increase in cost is due to rising energy, fuel, supplies and labor costs, as well as ground support issues in the haulageways during the third quarter.
At an envisioned mining rate of 2,500 tons per day, Royal's staff estimated capital requirements of $60 million which would have constructed a new state-of-the-art milling facility and new haulageways into the mine.
