Continuous face-to-preparation plant coal haulage systems.
Coal Age 1975 Jul; 80(8):117-122
The production capabilities of presently available coal extraction machinery far exceed the capabilities of existing haulage systems to move the product from the face to the preparation plant. All elements of the transportation problem are considered under the Bureau of Mines research and development program; that is, attention is paid not only to conveying the coal and waste rock but also to transporting personnel, supplies, and equipment between the coal face and the surface and within the mine.
