Development of a Cross-pit Conveyor System - 3 Volume Set. Volume I.
NTIS: PB 299-872 :75 pages
This report presents the results of a program to design and evaluate a cross-pit conveyor system (cpcs) that is particularly attractive in the conditions of thick coal and thick overburden. The system will reduce both stripping costs and required personnel. Using state-of-the-art technology and equipment, the system will provide application for medium-range draglines and stripping shovels by extending the operating range capabilities. The system will also provide the capability to handle the future requirements of mining thin coal seams under thick cover.
