Major Project: Main Drill Design

I have been spending some time thinking about some of the problems which the drilling machinery may encounter due to working on Mars. I have attempted to come up with a design for the conveyor system which will transport the mined ice to a processing facility.

Also I have been working on the design of the main drill which would be used to mine the ice, there are still a few issues which need to be addressed such as debris flying away as it is drilled which I think I will have to create a system which encompasses the maid drilling area.
