Ibberson and Kiewit Canada were contracted to design the slipform and pour the head frame at the new Mosaic K-3 mine site. Overall height of the Koepe hoist floor was 312 feet. The completed head frame is the tallest manmade structure between Calgary and Winnipeg. It is also one of the tallest mine shaft head frames in the world. Scope included:

  • Pouring the structure via slipform erection
  • Pouring the Koepe and Blair hoist floors
  • Erecting the Blair sub foundation steel floor at the 121-foot elevation
  • Blair access level floor
  • Installing the internal stairs
  • Lightning protection
  • Two large 20-foot-tall portal doors at ground level

The Koepe hoist level presented a unique challenge due to the elevation having a 24-foot by 73-foot concrete wing wall extension on two sides, starting at the 292-foot elevation
