Abstract
It is not unusual to encounter methane gas during shaft excavation or shaft-filling operations. Shafts into coalbeds usually produce the most methane, so the information in this chapter applies primarily to shafts at coal mines. Nevertheless, much of the information is relevant for noncoal mines that have methane in the mine or in the overlying strata.
