NTIS: PB/263-577 Available for Reference At Bureau Libraries :407 pages
After defining the metal mine shaft fire and smoke hazard problem, prototype hardware was designed and demonstrated through actual fire tests in a shaft/shaft station mockup, then at the 3000 level of an operating mine shaft. The mine shaft fire and smoke protection system automatically warns of fire using both thermal and smoke fire detectors, then closes smoke doors and turns on sprinklers through remote controls at the surface and at the shaft station.
