Abstract
Mines in the United States are continually descending to greater depths in the search for minable deposits, but the high temperatures and humidities encountered at these depths make a comfortable working environment difficult and expensive to maintain. To help deal with this problem, the Bureau of Mines awarded a contract to investigate and evaluate commercially available means of energy recovery for the deep mining industry. This paper discusses benefits that can be realized using high-pressure water to operate a turbine, the economic considerations, the use of turbine technology in mine applications, and outlines the research program plan for further study.
