The task of this committee was to broadly examine coal research, technology, and resource assessments, recognizing that they are essential components of an integrated roadmap for our nation’s future energy intent of this analysis was to allow policy makers to gauge the success of past research activities, gain a clearer understanding of the research presently being undertaken.

The U.S. coal industry serves a vital role in the nation’s economy by producing fuel for more than half of its electricity. Despite the industry’s importance, industry financial data for —the strongest year for the coal industry in recent years—shows that it is a relatively small industry with revenues totaling $20 billion to $25 billion and net income between $1 billion and $2.

By the mids, the use of radioactive tracers in petroleum secondary recovery operations had become generally routine and much of Bartlesville's pioneering work was widely accepted.

For much of the Government's mainline petroleum research, however, the s proved to be a struggle. Figure 2. Roof fall fatalities in underground coal mines.

Hand loading with a safety post. the accident data and the words of the participants, was far. Industrial work during the nineteenth century was often hazardous.

Nowhere was this situation more true that in coal mining. By the s some anthracite coal mines in northeastern Pennsylvania had reached as much as 1, feet into the earth. Miners reached these depths with technologies that, by later standards, would seem primitive.

The Bureau of Mines research, development, and demonstration programs are directed towards the conservation of our Nation's mineral and fuel resources, the protection of the miner from health and safety hazards, and the control of social and economic costs to help assure a.
