Safety Research and Experimental Coal Mines

Metadata Updated: March 26, 2018

Safety Research and Experimental Coal MinesLocation: Pittsburgh SiteThe Safety Research Coal Mine and Experimental Mine complex is a multi-purpose underground mine facility used to support research for the development and evaluation of new health and safety interventions for mineworkers. Researchers have utilized its 4 miles of underground workings extensively since the pioneer stages of mine health and safety research. The Experimental Coal Mine consists of two drift entries driven into the Pittsburgh coal seam developed to support full-scale mine explosion tests. The Safety Research Coal Mine is a room-and-pillar operation approximately the size of a working section and is utilized for research in areas such as ground control, ventilation, fires, explosives use, materials handling, and environmental monitoring. A full-time staff of miners provides technical and physical assistance to in-house and contract researchers.
