The Pine Point Project (PPP) will utilize a fleet of large haulage vehicles, typically 40 to 60 tonne capacity mine trucks, for transport of zinc-lead ore out of the mine.  These trucks will be loaded using an LHD (Load-Haul-Dump) during the development and production cycle.  Development and production cycles will commence as follows: drill, blast, load, haul, scale, reinforce, repeat. 

The trucks will haul material out of the mine using the decline which will be used to access the orebody, and will deposit the material on the R190 surface for crushing, and subsequent processing in the Dense Media Separation (DMS) circuit.
