Bridge conveyor is described as a short conveyor hung from the boom of a mining or loading machine, with the other end attached to a receiving bin that dollies along a frame supported by the room or entry conveyor tailpiece.

Thus, as the machine boom moves, the bridge conveyor keeps it in constant connection with the tailpiece
