Says it's for open face coal mining however I'd have to argue that. You'd have to wait for trucks just like a front shovel, so unless there was some sort of walking conveyor/stockpile pit that followed the machine around that conveyor loads the trucks, I don't see how it would be more efficient than a front shovel. I could see this as being more of a shaft mining machine but it's pretty large for that. Definitely a unique piece of gear.
