In October of 2016, Mine Ventilation Services (MVS)—which recently merged with SRK’s US practice—performed a ventilation survey for a large-opening room and pillar mine. MVS discovered that the mine had many areas with low airflow velocity causing dust to be suspended and built up. The 50-year- Read more... about Ventilation Study Focuses Efforts in Right Direction
