11/9/2012 - Unpublished documents and reportsA pair of new handbooks from NIOSH to identify and promote engineering controls to protect mine workers from overexposures to dust.
NIOSH workshop on Silica Dust Control for Metal/Nonmetal Mining.
9/27/2012 - Conferences, workshops, and seminarsWorkshop on Diesel Emissions Control Technologies in Metal/Nonmetal Mines.
6/1/2006 - Conference papersThe Super Stopping is designed as a long-term permanent stopping for use in the main entries of the mine, while the EZ-Up Curtain Stopping, although very durable, is designed more for portability and ease of installation. This paper describes the design...
Technology News 519 - EZ-Up Curtain Stoppings: A Practical Solution for Directing Ventilation Airflows in Large-opening Metal/Nonmetal Mines5/1/2006 - Technology NewsThe EZ-Up curtain stopping is designed primarily for use as a temporary or portable stopping, although test results indicate that it may remain durable for an extended time. It can be constructed from a variety of fabrics, including standard mine bratti...
Technology News 518 - Super Stopping: A Permanent Solid Stopping for Directing Ventilation Airflows in Large-opening Metal/Nonmetal Mines5/1/2006 - Technology NewsThe Super Stopping is a permanent, long-term ventilation control for large-opening metal/nonmetal mines designed to last for the life of the mine. This report discusses construction of a Super Stopping, as well as successful testing of the stopping at 3...
1/1/2003 - Technology NewsConventional anemometers (e.g., vane) are capable of accurately measuring air velocities only above 100 ft/min. This research investigated other anemometry technology to detect low air velocities in the range of 0-100 ft/min. Two different portable ultr...
2/1/2002 - Conference papersThe ultimate goal of this research is to develop control technologies to reduce worker exposure to respirable silica dust. Dust surveys were conducted in an underground limestone and gold mine to investigate silica dust sources, generation levels, and ...
NIOSH Ventilation Research Addressing Diesel Emissions and Other Air Quality Issues in Nonmetal Mines2/1/2002 - Conference papersDiscusses current NIOSH research to improve mine ventilation and mine air quality, particularly for large opening mines.
6/1/2001 - Technology NewsTwo new videos are now being released. Both of these videos were shot completely in operating underground hard-rock mines and used expert miners to tell the story.
