Abstract
The Bureau of Mines is presently engaged in an experimental program to develop illumination systems for underground mines. The systems will provide illumination inby the last open crosscut while persons are working in these areas. Minimum illumination requirements have been determined, and research is now being directed toward the measurement of mine lighting levels and the evaluation of acceptable hardware. Several systems have been developed and are presently being evaluated in coal mines.
