Another reason MSHA doesn’t recommend end dumping is that, in many cases, the material is loaded out. The mine operator was end dumping at this mine. In this case, the loader operator had gone in and started loading other trucks. He did not inform the truck driver at the top that he was going to be loading out of the toe. As he continued to load trucks, the haul truck continued to dump at the same location. As the angle became too steep, it would not support the weight. If the loader operator is going to be digging in a pile like this that is actively being built, they need to go to the top and put a barrier or some kind of barricade or warning at the top so no one will dump in that area.
