Research by NIOSH on multiple-seam mining has resulted in two new ground control products. The first is IC 9495 which is a proceedings document containing a variety of papers that summarize recent knowledge about multiple-seam mining. The second is the Analysis of Multiple-Seam Stability (AMSS) software package which is a simple user-friendly computer program to help mine planners. This document briefly describes each product.
