Abstract
A joint Polish and U.S. research project was conducted on respirable coal dust generation under the Maria Sklodowska-Curie Joint Fund II. The project goal waws to investigate the effect coal seam properties on respirable dust generation in an effor to formulate dust control recommendations for Poland's longwall mining operations. During this project, 8 longwalls were surveyed in Poland's coal fields. Operational parameters, coal sesam parameters, dust control parameters, and dust levels were measured during these longwall surveys. This report examines the results from these underground surveys and compares longwall mining operations in Poland to longwall mining practices in the United States.
