The Mather Mine disaster ranks as the seventh worst mining disaster in U.S. history and the second worst in Pennsylvania on: Mather, Pennsylvania. Abstract. This Bureau of Mines handbook presents guidelines for controlling dust in underground room-and-pillar coal mines.

The dust-control techniques represented are primarily directed toward cost-effectiveness for the operators of small mines facing tightened Federal regulations due to excessive respirable quartz dust. Transformable Stopping: To make this stopping, damage-resistant brattice is converted to a permanent stopping.

After the brattice is hung, frames of 6-inch channel iron, feet wide, are fabricated on the ground, and one side is covered with gage chain link fencing.

Good ventilation is extremely important in underground mines. A well designed ventilation system can be used to control the temperature, quality of breathable air and in modern mines disperse radon gas. Air doors were used to prevent the passage of air through a mine working, in locations where access to the sealed area is still needed.
