THE ORIGIN OF CHUTES IN THE
MINING INDUSTRY

The control of material flow in ore passes and loading pockets is potentially one of the most hazardous operations in underground mining.

Chutes are transfer points in material handling used in the mining industry for controlled removal of broken ore from stopes and ore passes into hauling vessels by force of gravity and is almost as old as mining itself. The first notable chute used was the “Cousin Jack” chute made only by timber.
