The article discusses the creation of large-tonnage stockpiles in small sites as solutions to safely and efficiently move and stockpile aggregate materials at low costs. The best solution to create large stockpiles is the use of a movable tripper conveyor. The movable tripper conveyor could stockpile aggregate materials at 450 tonnage per hyt and eliminates usage of loaders and operators.
