Abstract
This report describes the engineering feasibility and economic advantages of using a mobile bridge-type, cross-pit belt conveyor system in conjunction with a large dragline to excavate and transport spoils in a typical western surface coal mine. The studies show that such a system could be built to survive operational and climatic mining conditions and that its implementation would offer a reduction in both acquisition and operating costs versus conventional mining units of comparable capacity. Reclamation costs can also be significantly reduced and the total reclamation process accelerated, making the cross-pit conveyor system attractive to mine owners and environmentalists alike.
