This report documents a project to develop a cross pit conveyor system for the Bureau of Mines. The conveyor system description includes details of the conceptual design as well as system and component specifications. The selection of primary and backup sites for system demonstration is discussed. Maneuvers and operating sequences required for mining the selected demonstration site are described and illustrated. Economic viability of the cross pit conveyor system was analyzed by estimating the cost of overburden removal per ton of coal using the Battelle-designed concept and comparing these costs with the cost of an available state-of-the-art 30-yd3 dragline operation. It was concluded that the cross pit conveyor system is a technically and economically feasible overburden handling method with a good potential to improve western coal mining efficiency.
