A unique railway-conveyor system will be installed at a Canadian mine, manufacturer Rail-Veyor has announced.

Rail-Veyor Technologies Global recently announced it has signed a contract to install a Rail-Veyor system at Agnico Eagle’s Goldex Mine in Val-d’Or, Quebec, Canada.

The 3km underground material handling system will be installed during 2016, and is intended to be operational in early 2017.

Rail-Veyor’s system features semi-cylindrical cars linked by flexible flaps, which prevent leakage and form an open trough capable of continuous movement along a light rail track.
