The article discusses the urgent tasks of improving the efficiency of mining transport system in a coal strip mine. A methodical approach is presented, which accounts for the target, reserve-forming and subjective characteristics of efficiency. The conceptual framework of the research is provided and additions are offered to the definition of the following terms: the mining transport system and efficiency of its operation. The author proposes the following efficiency indicators for operation of the mining transport system, i.e. the equipment efficiency factors and the labour efficiency factors. It is offered to determine the priority of measures aimed at improving the operating efficiency of a mining transport system using a matrix, which takes into account the economic effect and the utilization level of the equipment potential. The results of applying this methodology as achieved in by the Tugnuysky strip mine are described.
