The Mont Wright Mining Complex is owned by the world’s highest-producing steel company, which produces 115 million metric tons annually. The operations at Mont Wright include and iron mine and a concentrator mill. With a footprint of over 24 square kilometers, the open-pit mine contains resources and reserves of 5.6 billion metric tons of crude ore, with a grade of around 30% iron.

In 2013, the mining complex installed 2,600 ft of ENDURAPLY, ENDURAPLY PLUS, and ENDURASTEEL PLUS belting in widths from 30″ to 84″.

ENDURAPLY is designed for the heaviest mining applications. A polyester-nylon Crowfoot weave belt with high strength double cord weft ensures unequaled impact, puncture, and rip protection in textile belting. The heaviest warp and weft strength in the industry assures low stretch and trouble-free reliability, and specially compounded high quality rubber skims provide superior shock absorption and high adhesive strength.

ENDURASTEEL is designed to permit long conveyor centers with stretch of only 0.2%, and excellent flexibility around pulleys even at the highest tensions. ENDURASTEEL belts adhere to the strict German DIN standards for design and manufacturing. Additional combinations of cord diameter and pitch are available to meet special projects requirements.

The ENDURASTEEL PLUS belting supplied offers all benefits of ENDURASTEEL with an elastic steelcord breaker embedded into the top cover. These transverse breakers provide additional lateral strength as well as absorb impact tensions and provide maximum puncture, rip, and rip propagation protection.
