This Proceedings contains the presentations made during the program of the Eigth Annual Institute on Coal Mining Health, Safety and Research held at the Donaldson Brown Center for Continuing Education, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, Blacksburg, Virginia, on August 30, 31, and September 1, 1977. The Ninth Annual Institute on Mining Health, Safety and Research was the latest in a series of conferences held at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, cosponsored by the Mine Safety and Health Administration, United States Department of Labor, and the Bureau of Mines, United States Department of the Interior. The Institute provides an information forum for coal operators, managers, superintendents, safety directors, engineers, inspectors, researchers, and personnel from academia, research organizations, state agencies, and others with a responsible interest in the important field of coal mining health, safety and research. 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. A program of topics dealing with some of the most immediate concerns of coal mining health, safety, and research was presented by individuals from the coal producing industry, equipment manufacturers, federal and state governments, unions, and academic institutions among others.
