Proper pillar design is essential for safe pillar recovery operations. Between 1989 and 1996, 25% of all roof and rib fatalities in the United States occurred on pillar recovery sections. The analysis of Retreat Mining Pillar Stability (ARMPS) computer program was developed in 1995 and has been widely accepted by the mining community. A Windows version of ARMPS is now available. It features simplified data input, graphics, and an expanded online "HELP" facility.
