The Sand2C Project – 1000tph Conveyor System, aims to extend the life of the Southern Coastal Mine in Namdeb.
It was decided during an Accretion model adjustment that part of the accretion strategy would be to implement two additional Conveyor Systems in the U-blocks in Southern Coastal Mines which indicated by doing this the life of mine can be extended to beyond 2028.
Each system consist of a 1.5km Overland Conveyor; 300 meter Camelback and a 42 meter Radial Stacker. The system runs at 1,000tph.
The U40 & U0 Conveyor Systems were successfully commissioned in May 2015.
