Long Term Storage of Mining Ropes

The Mining Division is often asked what is the best method of long term storage for mining ropes.  These mining ropes should be:

1. Kept from the elements (ie. covered in tarps).  When ropes are stored outside, the site should be carefully chose to keep ropes out of the direct sunlight.

2. Stored in a ventilated area, avoid condensation, and limit the maximum ambient air temperature.

3. Rotated 180 degrees every 6 months.

4. Kept off the ground via timbers.  Ropes should be stored on a level and hard surface.  Rope should not come in contact with the ground and not stored on a cinder or ash floor, in proximity to sulphur, acid fumes, or mines tailing.

5. Kept dry to inhibit corrosion.
