Abstract
Researchers at the NIOSH Pittsburgh Research Laboratory are developing ways to protect the health of miners. Part of their effort is oriented toward improving the air quality in metal/nonmetal mines by developing proper ventilation techniques. The air quality of large-opening nonmetal mines can be greatly improved by using engineering controls of contaminant prevention and proper ventilation techniques. Contaminant prevention includes methods to reduce contaminants from entering the mine air. Ventilation can be improved with appropriate fan selection and fan operation used in conjunction with air coursing using manmade and in situ rock stoppings.
