3/1/2004 - Reports of InvestigationsHighly stressed rock in stopes continues to be a primary safety risk for miners in underground mines because this condition can result in failures of ground that lead to both injuries and death.
8/1/2001 - Conference papersThis paper introduces warning signs of slope instability so operators are better able to recognize hazards. The most common slope monitoring equipment and practical methods of installation are discussed as well as the limitations of these systems.
9/16/2020 - Research projectsA project to reduce the number of rib fall accidents in Eastern U.S. underground coal mines by way of developing an engineering-based design methodology that defines the appropriate level of rib support required.
9/16/2020 - Research projectsA project to reduce injuries and fatalities caused by rockburst-related ground failures in underground mines by developing an integrated, systematic approach for monitoring mining-induced seismic events.
5/1/2018 - Peer reviewed journal articlesA study exploring the geomechanics of bench room-and-pillar mining and the associated response of high pillar ribs at overburden depths greater than 300 m.
2/1/2018 - Contracts and cooperative agreementsA contract to adapt and use existing pattern-detection technology to identify minute changes in the mine environment.

1/1/2018 - Peer reviewed journal articlesA paper addressing the geotechnical considerations for concurrent pillar recovery in two coal seams with 21 m of interburden under about 305 m of depth of cover.
11/5/2016 - Research projectsA project to establish a new standard for ground control safety in deep vein mines.
10/27/2016 - Research projectsA project to reduce injuries and fatalities in western U.S. underground metal mines by reducing the falls of ground taking place in these mines.
