NTIS: PB 251 705 Available for Reference At Bureau Libraries :42 pages
A system has been developed that will monitor various parameters of a mine. First, it measures seismic disturbances above the mine that provides information on the activity of the mine. One can then detemine if and where a roof fall has occurred and then be able to initiate the appropriate action. In the event of a mine disaster this system can be used to detemine the location of trapped miners. Second, this system measures various air parameters, thus providing aid in the planning of ventiltion at different locations in the mine.
