Background Section 101(c) of the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977 (Mine Act) allows the mine operator or representative of miners to file a petition to modify the application of any mandatory safety standard to a coal or other mine if the Secretary of Labor determines that: (1) An alternative method of achieving the result of such standard exists which will at all times guarantee no less than the same measure of protection afforded the miners of such mine by such standard; or (2) That the application of such standard to such mine will result in a diminution of safety to the miners in such mine. In addition, the regulations at 30 CFR 44.10 and 44.11 establish the requirements and procedures for filing petitions for modification. II. Petitions for Modification Docket No: M–2012–163–C. Petitioner: Tennco Energy, Inc., P.O. Box 517, Middlesboro, Kentucky 40965. Mine: Hance Mine No. 1, MSHA I.D. No. 15–19408, located in Bell County, Kentucky. Regulation Affected: 30 CFR 75.208 (Warning devices). Modification Request: The petitioner requests a modification of the existing standard to permit a readily visible warning to be posted at the second row of permanent roof support outby unsupported roof or a physical barrier to be installed to impede travel beyond permanent support, except during the installation of roof supports. The petitioner states that: (1) The Kentucky Office of Mine Safety and Licensing requires ‘‘a warning device’’ to be placed installed on the second row of permanent roof support outby unsupported roof. (2) MSHA’s approved Precautions for Remote Control Operation of Continuous Mining Machines states that ‘‘while using remote controls, the continuous mining machine operator and all other persons will position themselves no closer than the second ‘‘full row’’ of installed roof bolts outby the face. (3) This petition is necessary to improve safety and to attain commonality between State and Federal regulations. PO 00000 Frm 00111 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 77113 (4) Safety increases when the distance an employee keeps from unsupported roof increases. The petitioner asserts that the proposed alternative method will at all times guarantee no less than the same measure of protection afforded by the existing standard. Docket No: M–2012–164–C. Petitioner: Gateway Eagle Coal Company, LLC, Three Gateway Center, Suite 1340, 401 Liberty Avenue, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15222–1000. Mine: Campbells Creek No. 10 Mine, MSHA I.D. No. 46–08637, located in Boone County, West Virginia. Regulation Affected: 30 CFR 75.500(d) (Permissible electric equipment). Modification Request: The petitioner requests a modification of the existing standard to permit an alternative method of compliance to permit the use of battery-powered nonpermissible surveying equipment in or inby the last open crosscut, including, but not limited to, portable battery-operated mine transits, total station surveying equipment, distance meters, and data loggers. The petitioner states that: (1) To comply with requirements for mine ventilation maps and mine maps in 30 CFR 75.372 and 75.1200, use of the most practical and accurate surveying equipment is necessary. (2) Application of the existing standard would result in a diminution of safety to the miners. Underground mining by its nature and size, and the complexity of mine plans, requires that accurate and precise measurements be completed in a prompt and efficient manner. The petitioner proposes the following as an alternative to the existing standard: (a) Nonpermissible electronic surveying equipment will be used when equivalent permissible electronic surveying equipment is not available. Such nonpermissible surveying equipment includes portable batteryoperated total station surveying equipment, mine transits, distance meters, and data loggers. (b) All nonpermissible electronic surveying equipment to be used in or inby the last open crosscut will be examined by surveying personnel prior to use to ensure the equipment is being maintained in a safe operating condition. These examinations will include the following steps: (i) Checking the instrument for any physical damage and the integrity of the case. (ii) Removing the battery and inspecting for corrosion. (iii) Inspecting the contact points to ensure a secure connection to the battery. E:\FR\FM\31DEN1.SGM 31DEN1

including whether the information will have practical utility;
     Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the 
burden of the proposed collection of information, including the 
validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
     Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and
     Minimize the burden of the collection of information on

techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting 
electronic submission of responses.
