Abstract
Report on sampling and evaluation of respirable coal mine dust as part of a study dust measurement and control, with special reference to the program for conducting a comprehensive dust survey in underground bituminous coal mines. A comparative evaluation of dustiness for "high risk" occupations in 29 previously surveyed mines is done to study the effect of the mandatory dust program on the reduction of the exposure of the miners. Data show that compliance with the federal respirable dust standards is attainable, and that many mines can even achieve the 2.0 milligram per cubic meter standard effective December 30, 1972.
