At the Spruce mine on the Mesabi range a conveyor system was installed during the summer of 1937 to handle open-pit ore Part of the ore is mined by electric shovels that load into trucks which deliver it to a raise driven from an underground level to the bottom of the pit The rest is mined by two tower excavators using 3-yard drag buckets Pirquitas mine is in Jujuy Argentina and owned by Silver Standard Ore is taken from the open pit mine and crushed before the metal is extracted with flotation methods Rather than as at most mines with machinery on site this mine relies on trucks and loading units to ship the ore
