Hoppers made of enclosed wood planks were located at the end of a well or channel in which the load was poured.

The ore mined in the galleries was taken down through wells to the nearest level with an exit. This ore fell and accumulated in the hopper, where the wagons circulating on the rails were loaded to transport it outside to the balances and the bocard.

The waste stone was thrown in the tips.
