The purpose of the paper is to assess the impact of the elevator conveyor angle on the volume of mining and development work in open pits that use the In Pit Crushing and Conveying System (IPCC) for ore mining. Numerical modeling combined with monitoring techniques was used as the main research method. In addition, strain points were calculated based on seismological and geological data. The econometrics of the rationale for using the incline conveyor was performed with indication of the share of costs, energy benefits, as well as the prospects for further use of the IPCC. Specific effects of the elevator conveyor angle on the volume of mining and development work have been discussed for the open pits where ore is mined using the In Pit Crushing and Conveying (IPCC) system. The economic viability of this technology has been justified, the environmental performance and efficiency of using conveyors within the IPCC systems have been analyzed, as well as the impact of the elevator conveyor angle on the volume of mining and the availability of the conveyors. The results of the research can be used both by mining companies and as part of more detailed studies of ore mining.
