Factors Affecting the Efficient Operation of Mining Cars in Underground Operations
Mining operations greatly rely on machinery and conveyances. The right equipment has to be in place so that extracting and transporting of ore can be accomplished as efficiently as possible. Mining cars are one type of underground conveyance equipment that greatly influences the activities at a mine site. They make it possible to move ore towards hoisting areas for transport to the surface. Mine cars also serve as a transport for tools, equipment, and even workers. Compromising the transport system in a mine will affect the productivity and success of numerous mining activities. Sufficient budgets for regular maintenance and updating of mine cars, for example, have to be allocated to ensure that they remain in good operating condition each and every day. There are a number of considerations to be made when a mine is implementing a conveyance system.
