Equipments in Terrace Mining

Intermediate cyclic or continuous transport (eg.

trucks and shovels, or conveyors)

The uppermost layer of overburden is normally

mined using hydraulic excavators and trucks

When soft material exists, uses a bucket wheel

excavator, conveyor belt and stacker

Dragline is not suited to this type of mining due

to the limited dump radius of the machine and
the much larger width of a terrace mine
