The purpose of this contract study was to determine which concepts of continuous face haulage can be developed into a safe, practical, and cost-effective conveyance for application in underground coal mining using the available state-of-the-art. The advantages and limitations of 15 different types of continuous face haulage systems previously or currently used, or being developed, were evaluated as to which ones had the most impact on underground coal mine haulage. The two most promising types of continuous face haulage systems covered by this study proved to be the bridge carrier and flexible conveyor belt systems, although both require more development work to extend their use into a broader range of mining situations and to improve their performance and reliability. Included in the report is a list of service requirements for an ideal continuous face haulage system to be used in underground coal mine haulage.
