Mining Industry Building Solutions: Equipment Storage & Sheds
The mining of metal dates back to pre-historic times. Throughout history, mining has widened to include the extraction of fossil fuels like petroleum, coal and natural gas. No matter what materials you mine or where you are located, SteelMaster’s team of project managers will help you find a durable building that will fit your needs.
One of the biggest benefits of purchasing a SteelMaster mining storage building is its clear span design. Because the envelope of our building is self-supporting, there’s no need for beams and trusses. This leaves 100 percent usable space inside of the structure to store bulk materials and expensive mining equipment.
SteelMaster’s storage buildings are made with a minimum thickness of 22 gauge steel and they are coated with a layer of Galvalume Plus that protects these buildings from the harshest environments. Our heavy grade steel Quonset Huts can withstand the bangs and bumps that come with a working building.
SteelMaster can easily deliver mining buildings to the most remote locations worldwide. Because a SteelMaster structure is composed of an easy to assemble multi-panel system, accessing difficult to reach locations is made simple. Minera Gold Fields, the company that runs the Cerro Corona Mine in Peru, uses SteelMaster buildings for their mining operations. The mine is located in the eastern slope of the western Andes, between 3,600 to 4,000 meters above sea level.
When work is finished at one mining site, SteelMaster Quonset Huts can be taken apart and moved to the next location. The size and design of your mining building will determine the best way to move it. All you have to do is uncouple the building arches into manageable sections and rebuild the structure in the new desired location.
