In compliance with ecological policies, activities undertaken by surface mines in relation to environment protection should be comprehensive and must take into account the principle of sustained development. One of the most basic tasks in this area is to reduce the nuisance caused by the noise emitted to the environment. The problem of above-standard noise levels caused by transportation systems operated in mines can be solved only after major noise sources are identified and analyzed in detail. This article first focuses on the literature studies to describe the possible sources of noise generated by a belt conveyor and in its second part it presents exploratory research into noise sources. The research was performed under laboratory conditions with the use of an acoustic camera as a tool for spatially identifying and classifying individual noise sources. The article identifies some phenomena related to the operation of main belt conveyor components and describes their characteristic frequency ranges. View Full-Text
