Company Info

Recognized as the pillar of the mining industry, the Redpath Group first opened its doors in 1962 by founder James Redpath, who later went on to complete one of the deepest circular concrete shaft excavations in North America – even by today’s standards. It was there that the company was truly solidified, earning huge accolades for their resourcefulness, performance and innovative thinking in mine development and construction in the areas of shaft sinking, mine development, construction and raiseboring.
