Abstract

"Peele's "Mining Engineers' Handbook" lists six of the more vital factors influencing the method of development and operation of a mine. These are (1) topography, (2) local geology, (3) location and mining of oreshoots, (4) haulage problems, (5) drainage, and (6) ventilation and safety. The purpose of this thesis is to provide a scheme for studying the drainage factor and to show how much a scheme works out in actual practice. Even the casual observer will note the interdependence and interrelationship among the factors listed. So closely tied together are they that the reasonable discussion of an item such as drainage may well be given in terms of the other items. Drainage will be discussed in just that fashion in this paper. A general study of each factor, and a program of water control will be followed by an application of this brief study to the water problem at the Morris Mine of the Inland Steel Company at Ishpeming, Michigan"--Introduction, page 1.
