    Extracting The Science:
    A Century of Mining Research
    Celebrating the 100th Anniversary of Original Research with the Formation of the U.S. Bureau of Mines in 1910

    The objective of this symposium is to commemorate the centennial of mining research in the United States. This research was formally initiated with the creation of the U.S. Bureau of Mines in 1910 and the Mine Safety and Health Research now resides within the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).

    The target audience for this symposium is the national and international mining scientific and research community, including industry, labor, academia, and regulatory and other agencies at the federal and state levels. Presentation topics include mine safety and health, mining systems and technology, ground control, and mine ventilation. The presentations should reflect the historical developments in mining safety and technology, as well as the mine disasters over the years that drove these developments. We plan to invite leading international mining researchers to present and discuss historical advances in mining methods, technology, safety and health in their countries and to share with us their significant research accomplishments.”

    Executive Committee:
    Michael Karmis (Virginia Tech), Mary Poulton (University of Arizona), Bruce Watzman (National Mining Association), Terry Hoch (MSHA), Jürgen Brune (NIOSH), Güner Gürtunca (NIOSH), Dan Alexander (NIOSH), William Wilkinson (Freeport-McMoRan), Dave Kanagy (SME)
