|Underground Coal Mine Map Reading Training|
Links to the NIOSH site where this material can be downloaded.
This training includes three components for teaching and testing map reading skills. The first, Map Reading Basics (MRB), covers terminology and concepts needed to read and understand an underground coal mine map. An opportunity to practice using those skills while navigating through a simulated mine is provided in the second part, Mine Navigation Challenge (MNC). These two parts can be used together or separately according to trainee needs. Trainees can get additional practice by going on a scavenger hunt in the simulated mine.
