Abstract
These proceedings consist of papers presented at Bureau of Mines technology transfer seminars in December 1983 to introduce to the mining industry the significant technological advances made in various aspects of ground control in mines. Papers were presented on mine design, hazard detection, ground installation equipment, and roof support systems. Emphasis was placed on those innovations that have been validated by industrial applications or by extensive field demonstrations. Although many of those studies and innovations were conducted in or designed for use in coal mine ground control, most of the new technologies can be adapted for use in various mining environments including metal and nonmetal mines.
