Toxic chemicals and physical agents found in mines are reviewed. Information from research findings, compliance data, and inventory listings is provided. Guidelines for validity, sampling, elimination of zero values, data comparison and determination of toxic concentrations are described. Reliability of exposure data and identification of agents for which there is no environmental data is discussed. Tablulated data is included for agents found in mine environments, exposure concentrations, and recommended exposure standards.
