Sample Pic Mosaic is building one of the world’s tallest mining headframes at its Esterhazy K3 potash expansion site.

An exciting new time-lapse video showcases construction of the Esterhazy K3 service shaft headframe, featuring footage of the headframe slip forming, which took place over 18 days, growing the structure at a rate of approximately nine inches per hour to a height of 293 feet above ground level.

Construction of the headframe Koepe floor and penthouse is scheduled for 2013, bringing the structure to its completed height of 374 feet.
