Mining Research Review.
NTIS: PB 272 912 :75 pages
The Bureau of Mines research, development, and demonstration programs are directed toward the conservation of our nation's mineral and fuel resources, the protection of the miner from health and safety hazards, and the control of social and economic costs to help assure a viable mining industry in the United States. Some major advanced mining technology programs discussed in this review cover coal health and safety, metal and nonmetal health and safety, the environment, and technology transfer. A section is also devoted to the international cooperation of the major coal-producing nations of the world that conduct substantial research toward improving coal mining techniques and equipment and developing more positive means to protect the miners from health and safety hazards.
