Please join us as Mr. Claudio Cossio, Stantec, talks about the Service Shaft (SS) designed for PT Freeport Indonesia's Grasberg Block Cave (GBC) operation. The SS is one of the largest underground systems of its kind and the first conveyance system of its kind in Indonesia. The system uniquely facilitates the movement of personnel and materials up in elevation from the existing adit access to three operating levels (as opposed to a more traditional system designed to transport from the surface down to lower levels).
