SIGNIFICANT REDUCTION IN THE TRANSPORTATION COST PER TON MILE OF BULK PRODUCTS IS ATTAINABLE BY THE PROPER ADAPTATION OF A TRUCK TRAIN TRANSPORT. IMPROVED HAUL ROADS, GREATER DISTANCES, AND INCREASED DEMAND FOR MINE PRODUCTS AT COMPETITIVE PRICES ARE RESULTING IN A RE-EVALUATION OF ALL COST ASPECTS OF MATERIAL MOVEMENT. THE TRUCK TRAIN CONCEPT USING RELATIVELY SMALLER TIRES THAN LARGE PIT TRUCKS OPENS THE DOOR TO REDUCED OPERATING COSTS BY LOWERING CYCLE TIMES AND COST PER MILE OF TIRES AND CAPITAL INVESTMENT.
