Mobile Heap Leach Conveying System

Mobile Heap Leach Conveying System

Looking for greater capacity, continuous material flow, and reduced downtime at your heap leach mining operation? Superior’s mobile Heap Leach Conveying system is designed in a custom, comprehensive manner for peak material handling efficiency.

At the core of the system is the mine-duty TeleStacker Conveyor, which is engineered with an internal stinger conveyor that maintains constant motion along a cell, distributing material evenly to achieve a flat top to each heaped pile, while also piling more material per move. The horizontal index conveyor, a feed conveyor, and multiple grasshopper conveyors are integrated into the system to ensure that a smooth flow of material is fed to the TeleStacker Conveyor.

Each conveyor is engineered with maximum mobility in mind. Superior’s total systems approach takes into account the specific requirements of your operation. Improve your productivity with a mobile heap leach conveying system from Superior!

Conveyor Functions

Telestacker Conveyor

The tail of this stacking conveyor mounts to the framework of the HIC [Horizontal Index Conveyor] and radially pivots around this point. The unit’s stinger conveyor telescopes an additional 30 to 70-ft (9.1 – 21.3m). This allows the stacker to pile more tons per move and creates flat top piles, which reduces reliance on dozers to prep the heap for irrigation.

Horiztonal Index Conveyor (HIC)

Equipped with a tracked drive, the TeleStacker® Conveyor is mounted to the frame of the HIC [Horizontal Index Conveyor]. The HIC moves itself and the TeleStacker® Conveyor along a cell’s centerline. This fully skirted conveyor is able to accept material feed at any point, which reduces moves and maintains uptime.

Horizontal Feed Conveyor

In between and perpendicular to both the HIC [Horizontal Index Conveyor] and grasshoppers, this portable conveyor transfers material from the grasshoppers and feeds the HIC.

Grasshopper Conveyors

Often at least 100-ft (30.5m) in length, grasshopper conveyors move in and out of a production pad based on retreat or advance stacking status.


System Highlights


  • Engineered with an internal stinger conveyor to maintain constant motion along a cell, distributing material evenly to each heaped pile.
  • A longer stinger conveyor, over that of conventional radial telescoping units, allows for greater flexibility in complex valley fill applications.
  • Manufactured with durable steel and a tubular braced structure that prevents any twisting and shifting, providing stability required for uneven ground and constant movement.
  • Technology that allows quick transitions from radial to linear modes, enabling movement along the leach pad cell centerline.
  • For greater site mobility, the track drive on the unit is designed to move itself and the radial stacker along the cell centerline.
  • For maximum flexibility, the HIC can be fed at any point along the length of the conveyor.
  • Overcome flotation and traction concerns in low pressure soils common to heap leach applications.
  • Transfers material from the grasshopper conveyor to the HIC to maintain a consistent, steady material flow.
