Student mine rescue in today’s mining engineering curriculum

Mining Engineering, 2014, Vol. 66, No. 2, pp. 33-33
Henderson, Nicole R.; Mischo, Helmut; Brune, Jürgen F.


PREVIEW:

Many mining engineering graduates enter the mining industry lacking training in mine emergency management. As a result, mining universities in the United Sates and other countries are beginning to form volunteer student mine rescue teams to train mining engineering students in handling mine emergency situations and give them hands-on experience managing potential emergency scenarios underground. In the early 1980s, the Missouri University of Science and Technology developed the first collegiate mine rescue team in the United States. For approximately 30 years, it was the only successful collegiate team until the Colorado School of Mines (CSM) started its program in 2009. Currently, there are at least five collegiate teams in the United States and one in Canada.
