Abstract
This manual was prepared to help and guide underground coal mine operators. It details both common and unique engineering methods by which respirable dust, which is generated in coal mines, can be controlled. There are five basic principles that are used to control or reduce respirable coal mine dust: (1) prevent or limit dispersion; (2) dilute with air (3) ventilate correctly; (4) prevent generation; and (5) provide seal protection. This manual and the control methods described are concerned with the first three items only.
