The Bureau of Mines is currently assessing the effictiveness of longwall dust control techniques in use today and those proposed for the future. The objective is being achieved through laboratory and field evaluations of dust control practices, using innovative sampling procedures, and state-of-the-art respirable dust monitors and support instrumentation. This makes it possible to quantify the effectiveness or lack of effectiveness of specific techniques. The results will provide the coal industry with the information necessary for proper application of dust control techniques.
