Whaleside Shaft Sinkers provides a range of expert mining contracting services including: Shaft Sinking, Mine Development, Shaft Equipping and Engineering.
Whaleside Shaft Sinkers (Pvt) Ltd was registered in 2011 as a subsidiary of Whaleside Investments (Pvt) Ltd which in turn was established in 1998.
In 1999, Whaleside Investments (Pvt) Ltd. entered its first mining contract with Zimbabwe Mining & Smelting Company (Pvt) Ltd. (ZIMASCO) as an underground chrome mining contractor. This became the company’s core business over the last 13 years.
In 2010, Whaleside Investments (Pvt) Ltd. entered into its first shaft sinking and lateral development contract with Shamva Gold Mine. It subsequently signed five other contracts, two with Jena Mines, one with Sabi Gold Mine, one with Turk Mine and most recently with Blanket Mine, in Gwanda.
Whaleside Shaft Sinkers (Pvt) Ltd. was established to give more emphasis to our current core business of shaft sinking.
All shaft sinking and chrome mining operations are now being operated under Whaleside Shaft Sinkers (Pvt) Ltd. Whaleside Investments has since been de-registered.
