Abstract
Concern with safety in mines is a constant preoccupation of mining authorities the world over. It is also one of the many subjects dealt with in the ongoing cooperative research work undertaken, for many years, by United States and Federal/Provincial Canadian organizations. This report covers one aspect: nondestructive testing by electro-magnetic (EM) examination of mine-shaft wire-ropes. It is an example of the benefits that cooperative work can achieve. The authors of this report examine the data contained in the Ontario Ministry of Labour's uniquely extensive rope-test data-bank; they augment these by information obtained from industrial and laboratory sources, both in Canada and the USA. As a result they conclude that, while EM testing has greatly increased the safety of mine-shaft hoisting, work to further improve the accuracy of this process - especially in certain corrosion and rope-construction related areas - is both necessary and urgent.
