Conveyors for the underground mining industry help to reduce spills, dust levels, and noise. When transporting materials via an underground conveyor, you can avoid the expense, maintenance, and high labor requirements of a large fleet of trucks. 

Using a below-ground conveyor is ideal for moving large quantities of a wide range of materials, like coal, trona, salt, potash, lithium, and more.
