Abstract
This report describes a study to develop a detailed set of guidelines and equipment recommendations to be used as a guide for mine operators, mine inspectors, and equipment manufacturers in implementing the emergency escapeway standards for metal and nonmetal underground mines. The historical background of metal and nonmetal mine fires and the development of present and proposed mandatory standards are reviewed. A discussion of the survey of representative mines and how the proposed standard affects these mines is included. The report also covers technical discussions of each escapeway component including a comprehensive computer simulation of mine evacuation.
