Abstract
As a part of its continuing program in protecting the health and safety of U.S. coal miners, the Bureau of Mines presented on November 3-4, 1969, a symposium on respirable coal mine dust. Cosponsored by the American Mining Congress, the National Coal Association, and the National Independent Coal Operator's Association, this symposium dealt with the various engineering methods of controlling dust in underground coal mines including ventilation, water suppression, machine design, and dust collection, and a discussion of respirators and life support systems. The merits of these various procedures and their potential application to underground coal mining were examined.
