Abstract
This paper describes the results of a continuing research project to investigate improved methods for predicting the underground climate in hot mines. The Homestake gold mine in South Dakota was the site for testing these methods, which are based on radial heat flow theory, to measure in situ values of the thermal conductivity and diffusivity of rock. The results verified that in situ thermal rock properties can differ considerably from those determined in the laboratory by a factor of two.
