Abstract
This chapter gives guidelines for preventing methane gas explosions during metal and nonmetal mine development and subsequent production operations. Emphasis is placed on recognizing the differences between coal mines, where the potential for methane hazards is relatively well understood, and metal/nonmetal mines, where methane may accumulate unexpectedly. Also, interviews with experienced mine operators add much to a complete understanding of what must be done to address methane problems in metal/nonmetal mines.
