Lead Anodes in Mining

Anodes are widely used in mining and electrowinning of metals such as copper, cobalt and zinc.

Royston Lead have manufactured tens of thousands of anodes for customers throughout the world. With short lead times and advanced manufacturing techniques, we continue to serve international mining industries on a virtually constant basis.

Lead Ballast for Mining

As with anodes, lead ballast has uses in mining, in this case to provide counterweights in lift shafts. This is particularly critical because of the heavy loads carried over long cable lengths.

Lead castings are used to anchor cables where ferrous metals are impractical, both from the perspective of corrosion and the weight they would be able to provide within such limited spaces.
