The system included two truck dump stations, five 60-inch wide conveyors in series and a 72-inch x 200-foot track-mounted slewing stacker. Mine trucks discharge the waste into one of the two dump stations located within the open pit. Three conveyors in-series elevate the material 600 feet over a horizontal distance of 5,900 feet to a 1,200-foot long tripper conveyor mounted on a 200-foot-high berm.
The tripper conveyor feeds a second 1,500-foot long tripper conveyor installed at right angles to the first. This conveyor feeds the stacker. The stacker feed conveyor is moveable which enables the stacker to extend the berm. This allows waste to be deposited over a wider area measuring 1,500 feet by 4,000 feet.
