Mine Rescue and Survival: Interim Report describes a mine rescue and survival system that could be developed from existing technology in about one year. The system could potentially save all coal miners who have died of carbon monoxide poisoning following explosions or fires. The proposed system consists of a survival subsystem using improved emergency breathing devices and refuge chambers, a communications subsystem using seismic or electromagnetic devices to locate and communicate with survivors, and a rescue subsystem of large- and small-hole drilling equipment and rescue teams.
