For mining companies specialising in underground mining, they know that each mine is unique, since each of these deposits have their own set of geologic, geochemical, and geophysical characteristics. The same holds true for mine shafts and mining cages, and though these are built in accordance to applicable standards and regulations, these are ultimately designed to meet the needs of the operation and the site.

Regardless of how the shafts and cages are built, these are still subject to the forces of gravity, corrosion, and age. Ignoring these elements and letting them accumulate on the mining shaft can cause an unplanned shutdown, which can have a negative economic impact on a mining company.
