Management Solutions for Non-Permanent Haul Roads


Non-permanent haul roads (also known as secondary haul roads) account for 60% if not more of the haul road network on most surface mining. Most mining operations still use water to abate dust with the view that water is cheap and readily available. However, water only abates dust by adding moisture to the road surface which does not have long lasting effect, especially on hot sunny days. Apart from water, there are other traditional binders used for treating secondary haul roads which have helped to reduce water usage.
