A Study of Underground Mine Heat Sources - 3 Volume Set. Volume 1 - Survey of Underground Mine Heat Sources.
NTIS: PB/233-540 Available for Reference At Bureau Libraries :131 pages
In this study (Contract No. G0122137), the sources of heat flow into a mine along with the various effects that this heat has on mine personnel were investigated. The object of this study was to compile all available published information pertaining to these underground heat sources and their effects into one report. This will provide the mining industry with an available, easy-to-use reference to aid in the determination of mine ventilation requirements as the mines are in the phases of original planning or being extended to depth. Areas of significant deficiencies in knowledge were disclosed during this overall appraisal. Recommendations on important basic research needs were outlined for future consideration by federal or industrial sponsorship.
