Conveyor Systems

West River specializes in building well-engineered and durable custom conveyor systems for the mining industry. Our conveyors will move your copper, coal, salt, potash,precious metal ores, or other materials more efficiently and safely than a fleet of trucks.  

Our conveyors are built rugged and can withstand the various rigors and challenges of the mining industry, such as:

  • Long runs
  • High temperatures
  • Uphill hauls
  • Heavy, abrasive materials
  • Dirty or dusty environments

We build our custom conveyor systems tough and can provide you with a complete turnkey conveyor package or individual conveyor system components and parts.

Underground Conveyor Systems

The combination of dust, dirt, and tightly confined spaces makes a high-quality underground conveyor system of the utmost importance. Adding to the complexity are the wide range of OSHA, MSHA, and state regulations that govern underground mining.

At West River, we understand the challenges inherent to underground conveyors. We will work with you to build a custom system that offers the highest levels of performance, reliability, and safety. We have helped countless mines design, build, and install a custom underground conveyor system that meets their unique requirements.
