Sunshine Act Meetings of the Board of Directors and Four of the Board's Committees, 4886-4887 [05-1781]

Download as PDF 4886 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 19 / Monday, January 31, 2005 / Notices Regulation Affected: 30 CFR 75.507. Summary of Findings: Petitioner’s proposal is to use a 480-volt, threephase alternating current electric power circuit for its non-permissible deep well submersible pump installed in the Shriver Shaft. This petition was filed for existing safety standard 30 CFR 75.364(b)(7). The applicable section of the regulation is 30 CFR 75.507, because item 4 of the special terms and conditions in a previous petition for modification, docket number M–86–35– C, granted November 17, 1986, and made final December 20, 1986, states ‘‘Air passing through the tunnel shall not be used to ventilate non-permissible electric equipment or components.’’ MSHA is requiring, for this 30 CFR 75.507 petition only, that the surface pump installations and control and power circuits(s) be examined under the 30 CFR 77.502 requirements because the circuit(s) that enter into the underground areas of the mine cannot be examined in their entirety to satisfy the requirements of 30 CFR 75.512 or the 30 CFR 75.364(b)(7) week examination requirement. This is considered an acceptable alternative method for the Federal No. 2 Mine. MSHA grants the petition for modification for the Federal No. 2 Mine with conditions. Docket No.: M–2004–037–C. FR Notice: 69 FR 55841. Petitioner: Eastern Associated Coal Corporation. Regulation Affected: 30 CFR 75.503. Summary of Findings: Petitioner’s proposal is to use trailing cables longer than the cable length specified in 30 CFR 18.35 for certain roof bolters, mobile roof supports, and shuttle cars. The cables for roof bolters will not exceed 900 feet, and 850 feet for shuttle cars. The cables for the 480-volt mobile roof supports will not be smaller than a No. 4 A.W.G., the trailing cables for roof bolters (e) will not be smaller than No. 2 A.W.G., and the cables for shuttle cars will not be smaller than No. 1/0. This is considered an acceptable alternative method for the Harris No. 1 Mine. MSHA grants the petition for modification for the Harris No. 1 Mine with conditions.
