Engineering, procurement, and construction for the Bowie No. 2 Mine, located high on a mountain side. It was operating in a very conﬁned space and trucking coal down the mountain. An expansion project was initiated to convey the coal down the mountain at 1,500 TPH to a storage/loadout location at the base near the highway. The project includes two downhill conveyor segments with declining angles ranging from minus 10° to minus 15°. They are regenerative conveyors, producing electrical power from the gravitational forces. Facilities at the base of the mountain include two coal stacking tubes and underground reclaim conveyor to a truck loading station.
