Development of a New Environmentally-Friendly Technology for Transportation of Mined Rock in the Opencast Mining


This article proposes a new technology of container carriage of rocks without construction of transport communications in an open-pit mine and with technological and energy-saving advantages. These advantages are: simultaneous excavation of rocks, transportation of rocks by the shortest distance, small mass of a container and mobility of a complex of hoists which will reduce energy expenses and the cost of transportation of the mined rock. One of the principal advantages of the developed technology is the decrease in environmental emissions into the atmosphere of the open-pit mine thanks to the reduction of the vehicle fleet. This technology will enable significant improvement of the environmental situation in the area of mining operations.
