8/1/1998 - Technology NewsThe Roof Monitoring Safety System (RMSS) provides a safer, simple, and inexpensive means for measuring roof movement; its use in underground stone mines is described.
1/1/1995 - Reports of InvestigationsMany mines rely on toxic gas sensors to help maintain a safe and healthy work environment. This report describes a prototype monitoring system developed by the USBM that uses light to power and communicate with remote toxic gas sensors.
1/1/1992 - Reports of InvestigationsReports on the U.S. Bureau of Mines development and testing of an instrinsically safe methane monitor based on differential absorption of infrared light.
Evaluation of Methods to Inform Development of a Near Real-time Monitor for Measuring and Reducing RCS Exposures in Non-coal Mines9/18/2020 - Research projectsA project to develop novel and improved monitoring solutions for respirable crystalline silica that can be commercialized and subsequently provided to mine operators for the assessment of hazardous conditions in the field.
