Mincore has the following underground mining and conveyor experience:
Relevant Underground Experience

  • Nifty Copper Upgrades
  • Newcrest Ridgeway Deeps – Trunk and Portal Conveyor Upgrades to
  • 10MTPA.
  • Argyle Diamonds – Design Review of underground crushers, collection,
  • piling and incline conveyors
  • Broken Hill – Detailed design of underground crusher and conveyor
  • systems
  • Kembla Coke and Coal – Design of 2,500 tph conveyors, 2 km to
    3.5 km
  • Somincor – Auditing and troubleshooting of main incline conveyor and
    antianti-runback system. 742 m long and 180 m lift (tin/copper)
  • South African Work
  1. Manganese mines of the Northern Cape. Blasted ore is conveyed by cable belt to the surface.
  2. Engineering and construction of a 4800 tph incline conveyor Syferfontein Pit 6 Project
  3. A feasibility study and subsequent project for the underground coal
    conveying system for Thubelisha coal minemine.The mine will produce an annual tonnage of 10 .6 million tonnes of export coal from 12 mining ssections.The mined coal will be collected from thecontinuous minerby the shuttle which will deposit coal into the feeder breaker.The 1,200 mm wide section conveyors collect the material and feed it to the trunk conveyors. Two incline conveyors;600 m along with four 900kW drives each transport the material to the surface bunker.

Conveying Experience
Long overland conveyors up to 13 km long and 4 x 1 MW drives or 10 km long
