Abstract
The purpose of this study was to evaluate two novel dust control techniques for longwall mining sections. The two systems, foam and air sprays, were evaluated in the laboratory, and the foam system was field-tested in three operating mines. Dust reductions between 13 and 80 pct were achieved during the field evaluations of the foam dust suppression system. This report describes the laboratory investigations and the field evaluations of the foam system along with the results and conclusions.
