The efficiency of mining operations is heavily influenced by major mechanical and electrical installations. There is, accordingly, a progressively sharpening focus on mining electrification—with primary emphasis on processing and processing-related equipment and systems. Intra-operational handling of bulk, mined materials, paradoxically, receives less attention but represents a key opportunity for both sustainability and economic optimization in the broader context of electrification. This paper presents and validates a model of electrified bulk material transport that offers key advantages over diesel and fossil fuel transport methods, as well as over conventional conveyor-based methods. Comparing lifecycle effects of a single-flight overland conveyor-based method with (a) multi-flight conveyor-based methods and (b) truck-based transport methods, this paper qualifies and quantifies single-flight conveying as a sustainable, economically optimized enabler of mining electrification initiatives.
