Abstract
Techniques are described for determining the properties of respirable coal mine dust, in order to evaluate the biological potential of different coal mine dusts for causing pneumoconiosis. Data are given regarding criteria for collection and preparation of respirable coal mine dust samples, tests of physical properties of dust, and methods for chemical analysis of dust samples. Preliminary results obtained with 2 Pittsburg coal mine samples demonstrate the feasibility of the preparatory and analytical techniques proposed in regard to physical characteristics and trace elements present in the dust.
