I’m happy I could contribute.  Definitely have a look at the “Pressure” and “Hydrostatic Pressure” type of load.  Whatever combination of load types you decide to use, make sure that the sum of all of them, in the vertical direction, equals at least the weight of the ore contained in the hopper (360 kN?).  You can do this by checking the sum of all vertical reactions at the constrained points.
