Underground conveyor

Project
Underground conveyor

Location
Northern Quebec, at Mine La Ronde

Capacity
1,000 MTPH

Distinctive features
Underground conveyor 800 meters long at 3 km underground.

Our mandate of Sotecma was to do the design and all the details as well as the technical assistance during the installation of a belt conveyor 800 meters long in a new gallery 3 km underground.

The capacity of the conveyor is 1,000 metric tons per hour.

This conveyor has eliminated the underground trucking of the ore in this section of the mine and at the same time reducing the need for venting and cooling of the mine.
