The objective of this study was to identify research and development needs for advancing mining technology as well as health and safety measures for western U.S. surface and underground mining. An overall summary of the individual reports of eight workshops attended by producers of trona, uranium, open pit copper, underground salt (from Midwest and New York), underground metal and nonmetal, etc., is presented. In addition to problems, future priorities, funding, and the decision as to who should be the prime mover on research and development are discussed.
