Overburden Conveyor Bridge F60
F60 is the series designation of five overburden conveyor bridges used in brown coal opencast mining in the Lusatian coalfields in Germany. As overburden conveyor bridges, they transport the overburden which lies over the coal seam. The first conveyor bridge was built from 1969 to 1972, being equipped with a feeder bridge in 1977. The third conveyor bridge was built from 1976 to 1978, being provided with a feeder bridge in 1985. The F60 has two bucket chain excavators of type ES 3750 on the sides to do preparatory work, one each on the northern and southern crosswise conveyor. The overburden conveyor bridge of Lichterfeld-Schacksdorf, now shut down, was used from 1991 until 1992 in the brown coal mine Klettwitz-Nord near Klettwitz. The mine has been converted into a 'visitors' mine' and the conveyor bridge has been accessible since 1998.
