The purpose of this study was to identify and, to the extent that data are available, to characterize the underground, non-coal mines in the United States and to assemble the data obtained into a national inventory of underground mines having the potential of providing lodging and shelter as a civil defense measure during a natural or man-made disaster. Data were collected from the Mine Safety and Health Administration, the U.S. Bureau of Mines, from discussions with mine inspectors, and from mine owners and operators during visits to six underground mines. The data collected were incorporated into a computerized underground mine data file at the FEMAOlney Computer Center.
