Spokane, WA: U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Mines, Contract H0230004, 1974 Jan; :1-133
This report (Contract No. H0230004) provides the results of an industrial engineering study that assessed the safety and efficiency of underground ore handling in U.S. metal mines. The specific objectives of the present systems study were to determine and evaluate the productivity of existing ore handling systems in a representative group of underground metal mines, to relate the available historical accident record statistics of these specific mines to the specific operations in the overall ore handling operations, and to highlight the potential areas of improvement for each mine on the basis of productivity and associated hazardous index for each operation.
