A framework for the introduction of mechanized mining

2009-8-26 · Conveyor belts are continuous flow devices that operatebest when fed with well-graded constant feeds. The choiceof belt width is governed primarily by the maximum lumpsize of material to be transported. The nature and shape ofthe material has an effect on the maximum inclination thatmay be used. Throughput is achieved as a result of thecombination of width and speed nstant feed to a conveyor belt is difficult to achieve inplatinum mines where the system for moving rock from theface to the conveyor feed point is by means of LHDs,which are essentially batch conveying devices. A quasi-constant feed onto the conveyor can be achieved byintroducing surge capacity between the LHDs and the feedpoint of the conveyor. This solution is, however, limited bythe practicality of providing large excavations at the head ofeach conveyor. Another approach is to feed the conveyorwith small frequent loads rather than large infrequent loads.This may, however, be at odds with a desire to use thebiggest possible LHDs for mining …
