For open cut mines there is another draft. IMO they are something completly

The intention of this proposal is to tag the most important and most visible
part of a mine - not the other parts, which are just normal buildings. The
area of the mine can be tagged with landuse=industrial.

Having winding gears is the main purpose of a headframe IMO.
