Formatted abstract
The objective of this thesis is to examine selected factors that influence the rate of production of the shovel – conveyor system at Goonyella / Riverside and as a result determine the optimal operation conditions. The shovel – conveyor system used at Gonnyella / Riverside consist of a P&H 4100 electric rope shovel, an MMD sizer crusher, a Weserhuette Otto Wolf Pty Ltd conveyor belt and an O&K ARS spreader. The selected factors that will be studied are: -

• The material that the shovel is digging – how it influences the ability of the electric rope shovel to dig the material as well as the sizer crusher’s ability to size and crush the material
• The optimum working face width, possibilities of excavation and the location for the electric rope shovel relative to the sizer crusher and working face
• The mechanical availability and maximum production rates of the individual components within the system and how this influences the overall system’s productivity

As a result of this study and analysis of the factor affecting the shovel – conveyor system, it is anticipated that an improvement in the onsite productivity will be seen and that this thesis will form the basis for further studies of the factor influencing the productivity of the system.
