This Proceedings contains the presentations made during the program of the Twenty-eighth Annual Institute on Mining Health, Safety and Research, held at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, August 25-27, 1997. The Twenty-eighth Annual Institute was the latest in a series of conferences, the first twenty-seven of which were held at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in Blacksburg, Virginia. The Institute enjoys wide support from the mining community and was co-sponsored by the following organizations: Department of Mining Engineering (University of Utah), Department of Mining and Minerals Engineering (Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University), Bituminous Coal Operator's Association, Mine Safety and Health Administration (U.S. Department of Labor), Mining and Metallurgical Society of America, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), National Mining Association, National Stone Association, (and) Utah Mining Association. The Institute provides an information forum for mine operators, managers, superintendents, safety directors, engineers, inspectors, researchers, teachers, state agency officials, and others with a responsible interest in the important field of mining health and safety. In particular, the Institute is designed to help mine operating personnel gain a broader knowledge and understanding of the various aspects of mining health and safety, and to present them with methods of control and solutions developed through research.
