"Purpose of Investigation: This study was undertaken to describe and analyze the system of haulage as practiced in mines of the Tri-State District by the Eagle Picher Mining and Smelting Company.
The investigation is concerned with all of the operations involved in moving the broken rock and is composed of three distinct procedures: loading, hauling, and hoisting.
One of the important items in the cost of mining is the movement of ore and waste to the surface for further disposition. Increased efficiency of transportation should introduce lowered production costs.
In this paper the efficiency of the present equipment and the present haulage system is evaluated. Suggestions are proposed for operational changes in an effort to provide improved performance "--Introduction, page 1.
